The federal cabinet today agreed to accept Kinder Morgan's proposal to twin the 63-year-old Trans Mountain pipeline to Burnaby, and rejected Enbridge's Northern Gateway oil pipeline across northern B.C.to Kitimat.
The new StatusQuo XL pipeline will begin in St. John's, Newfoundland, and will stretch right across the country to Victoria, B.C.
"Canadians - and especially British Columbians have said loud and clear that we don't want this reckless pipeline coming anywhere near the Pacific coast", Peter McCartney, Wilderness Committee climate campaigner, said in a statement.
The government had until December 19 to make a decision on the Trans Mountain pipeline, after a ministerial committee released a report raising questions about its environmental effects and impact on Indigenous communities.
Clark said she thinks voters will recognize her government has been consistent on its approach to pipeline projects.
Interim federal opposition Conservative leader Rona Ambrose said she supports the Kinder Morganpipeline expansion, but doubts it will be built because of the opposition.
John Wilkinson said he felt the government had responded thoroughly to the concerns of people in his North Vancouver riding. "That is why we are pricing carbon pollution, making the most significant investment ever to protect Canada's oceans and coastlines, instituting world-leading safety standards for pipelines by passing the Pipeline Safety Act, and have signed the Vancouver Declaration with the provinces and territories on clean growth and climate change".
Across B.C.'s lower mainland and on Vancouver Island - less so in the provincial interior - Trudeau is now accused of betrayal, of putting fossil fuel exploitation before environmental protection. Some, like Pam Goldsmith-Jones, said the decision is in the best interests of all Canadians.

"I know there are agreements in place with other First Nations, but there [is] also hostile opposition as you go through the corridor to the Alberta border", Horgan said.
The review was launched after a B.C. Supreme Court ruling ordered the province to render its own decision under the B.C. Environmental Assessment Act, rather than to rely only on Ottawa's review, to ensure obligations for First Nations consultation and accommodation have been met. With that, it looks like more smooth sailing for Clark as she prepares for another provincial election campaign. Beech won by 3,401 votes.
Hedy Fry, who represents the riding of Vancouver Centre, won by a comfortable 20,936 vote margin. "I think the premier misspoke or mischaracterized, as she's often wont to do, where First Nations people are on these issues".
Notley said that while the increased export capacity is a move in the right direction for oil producers in her province, she does not consider Canada's energy export needs fulfilled by the decision.
While local elected officials in Alberta celebrate the economic prospects of the pipeline, many tribal leaders in the path of the proposed expansion object to the decision.
The decision would help workers in resource-rich provinces like Alberta, he added.
