Ads and an injunction: Alberta-BC pipeline war continues

Newspaper

The United Conservative Party leader said Friday B.C.is attempting to drag out the conflict over the Trans Mountain pipeline by referring its proposed restriction on oil shipments to the courts. In the meantime, the province will proceed with the other measures around oil spill preparedness, response, and compensation.

McWatters said B.C.'s wine industry needs to reconnect with its Alberta customer base.

Following the announcement Thursday by Premier Rachel Notley that the two-week long boycott is over, came the news on Friday that the B.C. Wine Institute was back in as a sponsor of The Big Taste, a restaurant festival that pairs fine Calgary cuisine with quite a bit of B.C. wine.

Editor's note: This article was updated at 7:10 p.m. ET on February 22, 2018 with additional information about a change in B.C.'s previously announced measures. "The B.C. government has indicated they will not move forward on that threat".

The lifting of the ban followed Premier John Horgan's plan to involve the courts to see if British Columbia has the constitutional right to restrict the amount of bitumen that can flow through the Trans Mountain Pipeline.

Horgan said he still believes his government has authority in this matter, but will ask legal experts to draft a constitutional reference question to the courts. "That is simply not an option". In Quebec, 64 percent were on side with B.C. compared to 36 aligning with Alberta.

Bilous says the message is getting through in B.C., but a new Angus Reid poll shows Canadians are split, half support Alberta's position and half support B.C.'s position.

Snow, Wind Coming to Northern Arizona With Next Storm
A winter weather advisory is in effect from midnight until 8 p.m. tomorrow as another winter storm heads toward Northern Arizona. Another storm system is taking aim on the Upper Mississippi River Valley Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.

"If it becomes clear that this action is, in fact, part of a deliberate strategy to harass the pipeline and its investors with frivolous or unconstitutional legal challenges, we will act immediately, and we will expect our federal partners to do the same", she said.

The fermenting trade war between Alberta and B.C. over Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain pipeline expansions has been put on ice - at least for now.

It's often thought, when it comes to selection and price, Albertans enjoy complete freedom when it comes to their booze.

"The prospect of losing Alberta, even in the short term, is not good at all, and that's why we reluctantly take this action".

The B.C. government will ask the courts if it has the authority to limit the expansion of oil transportation, a tactic meant to cool the trade war with Alberta over the construction of Kinder Morgan's $7.4-billion pipeline expansion project.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government has made it clear the project will go ahead and that Ottawa has the final say on pipelines. "And it's about B.C.'s right to defend itself against actions that may threaten our people, our province and our future".
