PREMIER CHRISTY CLARK - PROTECTING BC’S INTERESTS
Premier Christy Clark and her team are PUTTING BC FIRST.


They’re fighting to ensure that B.C.’s interests are protected on heavy oil pipelines like the proposed Northern Gateway.

Christy Clark's government has released a principled position on heavy oil pipelines, setting out five minimum requirements that must be met before B.C. will consider lending its support to a heavy oil pipeline across the province.

The five minimum requirements are:
  • Successful completion of the environmental review process.
  • World-leading marine oil spill response, prevention and recovery systems for B.C.'s coastline.
  • World-leading practices for land oil spill prevention, response and recovery systems.
  • Legal requirements regarding Aboriginal and treaty rights are addressed, and First Nations are provided with the necessary opportunities, information and resources.
  • British Columbia receives a fair share of the fiscal and economic benefits of a proposed heavy oil project.
