British Columbia opposes pipeline to West Coast

TORONTO — Canada’s Pacific coast province of British Columbia is telling a federal review board that it is not in favor of a pipeline from Alberta to its coast that would allow tankers to export oil to Asia

In its final written submission to the review panel submitted Friday, British Columbia recommends the $6 billion Northern Gateway project should not be approved as it has been proposed by Enbridge.

The province says the company has not presented any real assurance that it would be able to meet its commitments to oil spill prevention.

The fear of oil spills is especially acute in pristine British Columbia, with its snowcapped mountains and deep ocean inlets.

The review panel is due to issue a report to the federal government by the end of the year.
