THE PROVINCE – New gov’t regulation will prohibit LNG pipelines from carrying oil, bitumen

Aboriginal Relations Minister John Rustad said in a statement Tuesday that the oil-and-bitumen-free pipeline regulation should address the concerns of B.C. First Nations about possible environmental issues associated with oil pipelines.
