Feds and province won't quit on pipelines

Ottawa and Alberta are pushing ahead despite recent setbacks for energy pipelines.

The U.S. Obama administration announced last week it was delaying a decision on the Keystone XL pipeline and a non-binding plebiscite two weeks ago in Kitimat, B.C. saw voters come out against the Northern Gateway pipeline.

As well, there has been steady resistance from environmental and First Nations groups of both pipelines.

However, at a meeting in Calgary this week Finance Minister Joe Oliver said the government would never give up on Alberta and would continue to advocate for the Keystone pipeline until it was approved.

Alberta s International and Intergovernmental Relations Minister Cal Dallas said the province believes both pipelines are alive, and effort expended to promote them hasn't been wasted.
