British Columbia files case on its right to stop increased oil shipments

April 26 (Reuters) - The Canadian province of British Columbia said on Thursday that it had filed a reference case in a provincial court to establish its right to restrict increased shipments of crude oil to its coastal waters based on the heightened risk of a spill.

The province also said it was “highly unlikely” that the case would be resolved before a May 31 deadline Kinder Morgan Canada has set to determine if construction will proceed on its Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project. (Reporting by Julie Gordon in Vancouver)
