B.C. and Alberta premiers reach agreement on Northern Gateway Pipeline

The two premiers have had an uneasy relationship since Clark outlined five conditions to win her support for the controversial pipeline, including a “fair share” of the economic benefits of the project. Clark says Redford has agreed to work through those five conditions, which also include measures to protect the environment and ensure First Nations are properly consulted.

Earlier this year, Clark and Redford met in Kelowna and appeared to be willing to work together, declaring the two provinces as best friends and forming a working group to discuss economic issues.

Redford came to Vancouver today to speak at an event hosted by the Vancouver Board of Trade, and hours before, Clark’s communications director said a planned meeting had been cancelled because the premiers had not made any progress.
