Canada oil pipeline plan faces opposition

Residents vote against government project that could destroy wilderness and livelihoods in northwestern region.

    Canada has the world's third-largest petroleum reserves, but getting it to ports so that it can be shipped to Asia is proving challenging.

    A new pipeline project to address the problem, which received federal approval in June, has run into opposition from residents because it could destroy untouched wilderness in a northwestern region.
