Just weeks after the Washington Legislature committed $1.2 million to a study looking at high-speed rail connecting Vancouver, B.C.to Bellingham, Seattle and Portland, the British Columbia government added more money for the project.

Governments from western US states have been meeting with B.C's provincial government for 10 years as part of an initiative called the Pacific Coast Collaborative (PCC) - but this year the USA governors seem to be putting more value on this cross-border relationship. "We have serious questions about whether it really makes sense to be making such significant investments in fossil fuel infrastructure given the fact we know we need to wean ourselves off carbon based fuels". She acknowledged in Victoria there are differences in the country over the pipeline but it was approved after extensive review and will be built.

It says B.C. and the governors have also agreed to further strengthen cross-border trade relationships.

Earlier this month, Washington state legislators committed $1.2 million USA ($1.6 million CAD) to conduct the analysis of the idea.

"We in Washington are very appreciative of the leadership your premier is taking on this issue", said Inslee, answering questions from reporters in Vancouver.

Inslee said the study will be finished "within the next year".

Horgan says his US counterparts understand the urgent need to protect a shared environment and to slow climate change across a region that is home to 55 million people and represents the world's fifth-largest economy.

"The convenience of a one-hour trip between Vancouver and Seattle would create countless opportunities for people in both B.C. and Washington, from sports or concert getaways for families to untold economic growth potential for businesses", said Premier Horgan. "Leaders on the West Coast are united in understanding science in the commitment to clean waters and clean air". "And that is to ensure that our environment is protected so our economy can flourish".

"Working together on the West Coast, I believe we're demonstrating to the rest of North America the commonalities that we have, despite artificial boundaries", he said.

Horgan said his US counterparts understand the urgent need to protect a shared environment and to slow climate change across a region that is home to 55 million people and represents the world's fifth-largest economy.
