Quoted from the article (online here):

Former B.C. Premier Mike Harcourt is urging the prime minister to insist on a different route for the Trans Mountain pipeline to carry diluted bitumen out to tankers at Tsawwassen or Cherry Point in Washington State, instead of risking massive civil disobedience by opponents in Burnaby. ...

Vicki Huntington, the independent MLA for Delta South, said rerouting the pipeline to Deltaport is a non-starter because of the critical ecological habitat at the mouth of the Fraser River that would be vulnerable to a spill of bitumen.
