CALGARY - B.C. Premier Christy Clark continues to sound off about oil pipelines in Calgary - the headquarters of Canada's energy industry.

Speaking on a radio show, Clark says she will not be a cheerleader for the proposed Northern Gateway oilsands pipeline because her province won't really benefit from it.

She says it is not a good deal for B.C. because the province is shouldering all of the environmental risk of potential spills.

Clark made the same points Monday following a meeting with Alberta Premier Alison Redford.

The B.C. Liberal leader was to speak Tuesday afternoon at the University of Calgary's School of Public Policy.

The $6 billion Enbridge (TSX:ENB) pipeline would carry diluted bitumen from the oilsands through B.C.'s pristine wilderness before being loaded onto tankers bound for Asia.
