VICTORIA - Premier Christy Clark says British Columbia's five conditions for approval of the Trans Mountain pipeline have been met.

Her announcement comes after the provincial government granted environmental approval to the expansion of the pipeline.

The federal government gave its approval for Kinder Morgan Canada's $6.8-billion expansion of the pipeline late last year after the National Energy Board recommended it go ahead if 157 conditions are met.
