Last week the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce and the BC Chamber of Commerce both came out in support of the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline.

The Edmonton Chamber of Commerce issued a press release indicating they see the pipeline as a “nation-building exercise.”

The BC Chamber of Commerce filed a letter of comment to the Enbridge Northern Gateway Joint Review Panel indicating their support of the project.

The letter said the pipeline would provide northern B.C. with needed economic opportunities and is an important part of the Asia Pacific Gateway Strategy.
