NS premier concerned over tensions around future Trans Mountain pipeline

NS premier concerned over tensions around future Trans Mountain pipeline

University of B.C. political scientist Max Cameron, who previously specialized in trade relations, said it's a classic example of "a tit-for-tat strategy" where players retaliate against each other with "measures meant to signal the seriousness of the issue" under dispute. He maintains his focus right now is on this month's budget.

"The government of British Columbia is free to consult, the government of British Columbia can not infringe on federal jurisdiction that impacts the national interest". "I think there's a role there for them", he said.

What will it take to restore inter-provincial peace?

He said Notley's reaction was "over the top" when B.C. controversially asserted its right to restrict the flow of diluted bitumen through pipelines in B.C.to protect its coastline and environment, and announced extensive consultations and studies about spill cleanup that could take a year.

"We are now in court with respect to the Kinder Morgan process and until we get a resolution from the federal court, that is an open question". I have had discussions with the premier of Alberta.

Collins said she holds no sour grapes towards B.C. wineries and will bring the wines back to her menu once the pipeline dispute is resolved.

The NDP minister of agriculture, Lana Popham, briefly indicated a possible response Tuesday when reporters caught up with her during a previously scheduled tour of Okanagan wineries.

"We stand with our wine industry", he said. "It is a quality product and I know anecdotally, other provinces are emptying their shelves of BC wine so there will be more to export to Ontario, Quebec and other jurisdictions".

Two-time world champions, Argentina will also face Iceland and Croatia in the preliminary round in Russian Federation . Iwobi said it was flawless and different. "Moreover, they celebrate everything we relish about our culture".

"Certainly, I would hope we have seen the end of the back and forth".

But after Tuesday's announcement by Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, he isn't sure. For British Columbia, while the wine industry isn't almost as important in comparison, it's still a pretty big deal for the province. The $7.4-billion Kinder Morgan project would triple capacity on the 1,150-kilometre line, which runs from Edmonton to the B.C. coast. Ms. Notley had also suspended talks on electricity imports from British Columbia.

"It won't have a huge impact at this time because we are a small winery and most of our sales are here", she 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".

"It wasn't an easy decision".

"And it is not just that the Alberta government has to step back on the boycott on the B.C. wine because proportionately that is an insignificant boycott, to be brutally honest, when you look at getting the oil to market". "We're going to continue to engage with the premiers on a regular basis", said Trudeau earlier on Wednesday.

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe indicated his province supports Alberta in its fight over the pipeline expansion, but he doesn't think the dispute will be solved by trade measures that have an impact on consumers and private businesses. In the meantime, she said Albertans can buy "some terrific Alberta craft beer instead".

Simon Fraser University political scientist David Moscrop, meanwhile, said that the economic costs of an escalating trade dispute should give every side pause.
