Pipeline decision too close to chastise BC at western premiers meeting: Notley

Pipeline decision too close to chastise BC at western premiers meeting: Notley

It's imperative that Kinder Morgan is able to "finish what it started" and build the Trans Mountain expansion pipeline project, the president and CEO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce told BNN Bloomberg in an interview Wednesday.

Horgan, on a conference call Wednesday with B.C. reporters after the meeting, admitted things have gotten frosty on a personal level with Notley, someone he considers a friend.

But in recent months, B.C. Premier John Horgan and Alberta Premier Rachel Notley have had public spats over the future of the pipeline, even throwing in trade threats at one point.

So Alberta said "No thank you" to signing its support to shared priorities around a multitude of issues, including pharmacare, legalized cannabis, justice, U.S. But by the same token, one could apply a similar test to the B.C. government's reference case move to regulate increased shipments of bitumen to this province.

The Government of British Columbia filed Tuesday the statement of claim-after it had threatened to do so last week-in Alberta's Court of Queen's Bench, arguing that the "Preserving Canada's Economic Prosperity Act" recently passed by Alberta violates the Canadian Constitution in the part that prohibits any law that is a tariff or whose goal and essence make it "tariff-like".

Notley says issues such as pharmacare are important, but that "pharmacare does not grow on trees".

Conservative MP Shannon Stubbs, who represents Lakeland in northeast Alberta, will introduce the bill to the House of Commons within the next two days, Cousineau said.

Criminals claim they paid Australian batsmen during test match
Knowing that batsmen would struggle, the match-fixers made money by betting that the game would not end in a draw. Australian players were quick to raise their concerns over the pitch's bad conditions at the time of the match.

The final fate of the pipeline is exclusively federal jurisdiction and the Justin Trudeau government has already made clear its unwavering support for the completion of the TransMountain project. "Nonetheless, what I would suggest is it's probably premature, although we appreciate them sharing their arguments with us in advance".

"We were disappointed we didn't have those conversations with him at that time and we still haven't", said Notley.

"They're still reserving the right to play legal rope-a-dope until the cows come home", she said.

"It is not to stop the pipeline or prevent it", Eby argued. Greater Vancouver Board of Trade CEO Iain Black, who was part of the one-day business mission to Alberta, told StarMetro if Kinder Morgan pulls the plug on Trans Mountain, it would send a bad economic signal to investors. "It is to ensure we have the protections in place for when the pipeline is turned on ...

While we have succeeded in all legal challenges to date, a company can not litigate its way to an in-service pipeline amidst jurisdictional differences between governments".

"We will soon see if there is will or no will", Cousineau said.
