While BC Premier Christy Clark debates whether to allow an oil pipline to run through her province, another Premier is eager.
Northwest Territories Premier Bob McLeod has thrown his hat into the ring, saying he would be in favour of running a pipeline to the northern shores of his province.
The move puts Clark in a difficult position, lessening her bargaining power. Clark has found herself in a squabble with Alberta Premier Alison Redford ever since she began opposing plans to run the Northern Gateway Pipeline to the Pacific coast.
Clark is arguing for a 'fair share' of the profits from any pipeline to be funneled to British Columbia for the nuisance of allowing the pipeline.
