The eastern Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ontario are unlikely to use "undue" commercial benefits as a bargaining chip for allowing TransCanada's proposed Energy East crude oil pipeline from Alberta to pass through their jurisdictions, Alberta's Premier Alison Redford said late Thursday.

The premiers of those provinces are clear about the tremendous economic opportunities the pipeline will create, but they would first like to ensure residents of their provinces and stakeholders are comfortable with the development, she told reporters during a conference call from Edmonton.

This is the juciest tidbit in the article:
