Statement from Danielle Smith on planned revisions to Northern Gateway Pipeline

EDMONTON, AB (July 20, 2012): Wildrose Official Opposition Leader Danielle Smith released the following statement on Enbridge’s plans to revise the design for the Northern Gateway Pipeline project: 

“This is a positive development in the ongoing debate about the Northern Gateway Pipeline. I’m glad to see that Enbridge is responding to the concerns raised by Aboriginal groups and others. It is very positive to see the company demonstrating that it is prepared to make significant changes in order to address concerns and win broad support for this vitally important project. 

“Wildrose will continue to strongly advocate on behalf of all Albertans for additional pipeline capacity to carry Alberta’s vast deposits of natural resources to market. We believe it’s important to work with industry to build environmentally secure pipelines that will ensure the stability and growth of Alberta’s economy for generations to come.”
