A $20.6-billion oilsands project with widespread support in Alberta was nixed late Sunday when Teck Resources Ltd. publicly announced it would be pulling the application it had on the table, waiting for federal approval due in a matter of days.

The stunning move to kill the Teck Frontier mine came just hours after the Alberta government signed two agreements to partner with the Mikisew Cree First Nation and the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation on the project.

The long-anticipated development in the Alberta energy industry had been expected to create an estimated 7,000 jobs during construction, and 2,500 over its 41-year lifespan.
