As we wait for the federal government say “Yes” or “No” to the controversial Northern Gateway pipeline, BC’s Premier says she won’t stand in the way of a group demanding a province-wide referendum on approval.
“Well, I think if there is a referendum, it’s up to them to decide, up to the public to decide, I’ll let that unfold as it may.”
Christy Clark adds none of the proposals put forward so far have her approval, yet.
“There are five conditions; any proposal to expand heavy oil through British Columbia needs to meet the five conditions. Enbridge hasn’t met them yet, and they need to before they would be approved by our province.”
The Dogwood Initiative has just launched the LetBCvote.ca, a campaign demanding a province-wide vote, much like the one that defeated the HST.
