Notley launches more ways to fight BC's pipeline stance

NDP didn't seek Alberta dispute, Horgan says

Opposition leader Jason Kenney wants an emergency debate on the province's pipeline dispute with British Columbia.

Last Tuesday, she announced the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission would no longer be purchasing B.C. wine, in a more-than-multi-million-dollar hit to British Columbia - but a far cry from what Alberta loses each day the pipeline is stalled.

Alberta has already announced it is suspending talks to purchase B.C. electricity, and banned the import of B.C. Wines into Alberta.

She said she had a "a lot of stuff" to do, including preparing for the upcoming Spring session and a Throne Speech.

But he's got one now, and it's a fight that he might have to wage on two fronts, because this time around, a Trudeau government might be on Alberta's side, at least in words if not in action.

About the only reason I can see for the fed Libs to scold the B.C. Dippers for holding up a pipeline is that the Trudeau Liberals don't like competition for who gets to hose Alberta the most. The pipeline expansion is in the best interest of the entire country.

Notley said yesterday that she doesn't want to escalate the feud, but that B.C.'s actions on the Trans Mountain pipeline are illegal and must be reversed.

So, thumbs up to Notley sticking to her statement that "the gloves are off". "The ball is in B.C.'s court".

KMI recently said it expects the operational date for the pipeline is now a year later than expected, to December 2020, but that it remains committed to the $7.4B project despite the latest hurdles.

He wrote in the social media post that he wished he could be back home to help. Power was slowly being restored after the late Friday storm.

Horgan and Notley are both NDP premiers. "We're talking days, not much more than that", said Notley.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is also skipping the NDP Convention in Ottawa, which kicks off Friday.

Of course, this could turn ugly for Alberta very quickly. Industry staff have said even a few Albertans have still been looking to B.C. for a bottle of Merlot. Horgan has stated he has no plans for retaliation, but we have to consider the possibility. "We need to make a stink", Kenney told Postmedia columnist Rick Bell.

I'm positive the province's wine ban wasn't a decision made lightly, but it was certainly made quickly.

Interprovincial trade between the four western provinces is guided by the New West Partnership Trade Agreement.

We're in potentially unsafe territory from an economic standpoint.

If B.C. won't permit additional amounts of Alberta bitumen to cross B.C. territory by pipeline or railcar, perhaps we'll cut off their access to Alberta pipes altogether.

"There are no options that we are ruling out", Notley said when asked about further measures, including potentially stopping the current flow of oil in the Kinder Morgan pipeline.
