Lamphier: Northern Gateway not essential to oilsands growth

By Gary Lamphier, The Edmonton Journal, June 19th, 2014

EDMONTON - In the end, it was an utterly predictable decision.
Ditto for the storm of protest that followed it, particularly on the West Coast.

Among 15 Canadian cities, the accounting and consulting firm ranked Edmonton at the top, up from its second-place finish in a 2012 report.

“It’s a very positive story for what I’ll call the Edmonton Advantage of attracting business to northern Alberta,” said Barry Travers, business unit leader for tax in western Canada at KPMG.  GRAB THIS STORY
