A day after accepting a review panel’s recommendation to impose more than 200 conditions on the Northern Gateway project, a government spokesman is now insisting the Conservatives have not approved the pipeline.So when the protests gear up, this is how the Harper Cons are going to play it -- outraged innocence and plaintive pathos.
Instead, it’s just “a maybe,” a spokesman for Natural Resources Minister Greg Rickford says.
@jbourbeau Inaccurate. Government support dependent on proponent meeting 209 conditions imposed by independent regulator. It's a 'maybe'.

They will stamp their little feet and proclaim how we have hurt their delicate fee-fees if we dare to claim they approved Northern Gateway.
