UCP calls for emergency debate on pipeline dispute

During a news conference Monday, she pointed to his election promise past year to use "every tool in the toolbox" to stop the expansion of the $7.4-billion Trans Mountain pipeline that would pump more of Alberta's oilsands bitumen to the West Coast for shipment overseas.

Notley said Monday the reason she attended that party gathering because it was being held in Edmonton.

"This fight, it isn't something any one government can do alone", Notley said in a news release Tuesday.

Well, B.C. makes sizeable shipments of natural gas to the United States via pipelines that cross Alberta.

"Last week I wrote the Premier asking that her Government convene an emergency sitting of the Legislature to allow MLAs of all parties to discuss this critical economic issue, inform the government's approach, and hopefully show a sign of unity in calling for federal action to get Trans Mountain built", Kenney said.

"That industry, that engine of our prosperity is under massive attack", Kenney said, singling out B.C.'s "anti-development" government as a leader in the anti-energy movement.

Kinder Morgan's proposal would triple the capacity of the Alberta-B.C. pipeline.

One week later, she announced that $70 million in annual sales of B.C. wines into Alberta would be banned and hinted B.C. craft beer could be next.

He took the silver in this event at the 2014 Olympics at just 15 years old and is now more experienced and just as talented. By this stage, Japan's Ayumu Hirano had bumped him off top spot after a near-flawless second run which scored 95.25.

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna defended the federal government's response and said it's time to "take the temperature down".

The latest salvo by Rachel Notley and her Alberta provincial government in their inter-governmental battle with the B.C. government over Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain pipeline is an online petition. However, Notley has already claimed B.C.'s actions against the pipeline are unconstitutional, so.an eye for an eye?

"If you delay these investment projects too long, this does have real implications for the proponent", Tombe said.

But that's why Prodan's quote of rallying people "on either side of the divide" is important, because the ban not only secures Alberta's fight for the pipeline, but could also likely result in B.C. residents fighting for the trade ban to end.

"We're getting ready for a throne speech and a spring session and a budget, and my focus is on Alberta", she said.

Val Litwin, president of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce, said Ottawa needs to make it clear to B.C. that it has no constitutional authority to restrict what moves on a federally mandated pipeline.

In responding, Mr. Carr insisted the federal government will defend its jurisdiction to approve the $7.4-billion pipeline project, which it has determined to be in the national interest.

"This issue now sits, I think, squarely on the shoulders of Justin Trudeau", he said.
