Adrian Dix on pipeline agreement

B.C. and Alberta have signed an agreement to move forward on allowing heavy oil pipelines from the oil sands to the coast. The agreement was announced today by Premiers Christy Clark and Alison Redford. It says Alberta is fine with B.C.'s five conditions for supporting pipelines through the province as long as B.C. doesn't ask Alberta for a share of royalties from oil extraction.
   
The five conditions are that an environmental assessment is done, that the province has world-leading marine and land oil spill response and prevention, that First Nations treaty rights are respected, and B.C. gets a share of the economic benefit.
