TransCanada should take their plans for the controversial Northern Gateway pipeline north.
That according to the Premier of the Northwest Territories, Bob Mcloed.
McLoed told CBC, Saturday, his region could be an alternate route for the embattled oil sands link, as a natural gas line planned for the territory, the Mackenzie Valley line, has been put on hold.
The proposal was welcomed by Alberta Minster of International and intergovernmental affairs, Cal Dallas.
However, Mcloed admitted the plan is full of holes.
Even though resource-rich NWT is willing to partner with Alberta, Mcloed says they would likely experience much of the same environmentalist and aboriginal backlash as British Columbia.
This as BC premier Christy Clarke demands a fair share of the Enbridge pipeline profits in exchange for provincial approval, signalling a political turf war with Alberta's Alison Redford.
