  • Pipeline feud between Alberta and B.C. not about oil, it’s about destroying rights

    The Alberta-B.C. pipeline feud isn’t about oil, it’s about destroying your rights. Oh, and getting votes. Remember the Exxon Valdez because with increased tanker traffic in constricted waterways, it’s when, not if.
