Provincial jurisdiction over interprovincial pipelines

'Although the federal government has jurisdiction over interprovincial pipelines, provinces may have some influence over pipelines that cross their boundaries. While interprovincial pipelines are unquestionably federal undertakings, numerous related matters - provincial Crown land, property and civil rights, and direct taxation in a province - fall within provincial jurisdiction.'--Publisher's website.
