Enbridge pipeline, tankers draw fire at annual UBCM convention
Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline was a hot topic at last week’s Union of BC Municipalities’ (UBCM) annual convention in Whistler. For those unfamiliar with the organization, the UBCM brings together mayors and councillors from all of BC’s towns and cities, as well as the directors of Regional Districts. Over the week, they sit through workshops and network with each other and the many MLAs and ministers on hand. They also vote on policy resolutions, which if passed, are then championed by the UBCM executive at meetings with higher levels of government.
