A federal review panel's report on Enbridge's proposed Northern Gateway pipeline will be released Thursday afternoon in Calgary following more than a year of hearings in B.C. and Alberta.

The $6.5-billion pipeline would take bitumen from Alberta's oilsands to the B.C. coast for tanker export to Asia. But the controversial proposal has pitted Calgary-based Enbridge against environmental groups and several First Nations.

Tune into Daybreak from 6 until 8:30 today as we bring you a preview of today's recommendations.

CBC Radio will also have live coverage of the news as it breaks, beginning at 1:30 pm with BC Almanac's Mark Forsythe and the 180's Jim Brown.

There will also be a live chat online at cbc.ca/bc so you can weigh in with your opinions.
