Patience wearing thin with Trans Mountain delays, president says

Patience wearing thin with Trans Mountain delays, president says

He maintains his focus right now is on this month's budget.

"I hope that you will consider the severity and effect of the actions your minister has proposed and that you will accept my offer to meet with you to discuss these and any other matters relating to the operations of our company in B.C".

She adds Justin Trudeau needs to step in and assert his authority.

"Obviously, we're going to continue to make sure that we're standing up for the national interest", he said.

"We are calling on the premier to think very seriously about the severity of the actions and the path that they're undertaking here".

Kinder Morgan has already slowed spending on the multibillion-dollar pipeline, and said oil shipments would not start before December of 2020 at the earliest, a year later than planned.

"A lot of producers we work with are really at the forefront of discovering what it's all about and making really awesome wine". "When it comes to our rights, my rights as the premier to consult with British Columbians about putting in place protections for our environment and our economy, I see no ground for Premier [Notley] to stand on".

"We can do that by boycotting BC wine", tweeted Notely on Tuesday. "Lana Popham, the minister of agriculture, is reaching out to growers across the Okanagan".

"I like B.C. wines, so I would like them to not ban it", she said.

From oil to electricity to wine - and speculation that beer and beef could be next - consumers and retailers are keeping a close eye on whether another province bans a product.

In Victoria, Horgan said while he and Notley may both be New Democrats, that is a secondary consideration.

"I don't believe it's in anyone's interest to have dueling Premiers", Horgan said. This escalation of the pipeline dispute is "entirely in the hands of Premier Notley, not me... It's well know that we share the same political flag", he said.




Alberta's tar sands drive the majority of Canada's carbon emission growth, and generations of governments have knowingly compromised the climate in order to expand them. With a throne speech next week, he said he would not be distracted, and he hopes "cooler heads on the other side of the Rockies will prevail".

If the point of the British Columbia government's continuing tantrums against bitumen pipelines is to get proponent Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd.to quit in frustration, it's not working.

"When a news story's hot, it's hot for a day or two", she said Wednesday.

The war of words between Alberta and B.C. surrounding the Trans Mountain Pipeline is becoming more serious.

The premier said she understands this will impact some small businesses, but until BC stops its tactics outside provincial jurisdiction, it's a necessary measure.

The two other Western provinces expressed concern about the trade dispute between neighbours.

During question period this week, Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr defended the decision to build Trans Mountain based on a sound review process, followed a few minutes later by McKenna "eviscerating the process" before she introduces the overhaul legislation, she noted.

Last week, Notley said Alberta was suspending further talks on power purchase agreements with B.C. worth up to $500 million annual to that province's coffers.

Anderson said he sent a letter this week to Horgan about his concerns for the province's plans and its implications for the $7.4-billion Trans Mountain project that would nearly triple the capacity of the pipeline.

Trudeau refused to wade publicly into the dispute on February 7, saying talks continue behind closed doors with the provinces.

"Ms. Notley is simply acting like any other establishment politician up for re-election".
