Notley slams B.C. premier on Trans Mountain pipeline

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley will not attend the Western Premiers’ Conference in Yellowknife this week ​Senate passes bill calling for Ottawa to back Trans Mountain | Regulatory

There matters stood until April 8, when Kinder Morgan, owner of the Trans Mountain Pipeline, put further work on the expansion project on hold.

The interprovincial spat between the two NDP premiers prompted Alberta to briefly cut off B.C. wine imports and threaten to turn off the oil taps.

The lawsuit claims the legislation is unconstitutional because it violates section 121, which allows: "All articles of the Growth, Produce, or Manufacture of any one of the Provinces shall, from and after the Union, be admitted free into each of the other Provinces".

It has set a May 31 deadline for getting assurances it can proceed without delays on the controversial project.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley won't be at today's meeting of the western premiers in Yellowknife, but she made some choice remarks about one of the leaders who will be there.

Morneau has already unveiled the third option: leaving original project architect Kinder Morgan to handle construction, but covering any cost overruns incurred as a result of political interference.

Plans to triple capacity along the existing Trans Mountain pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby have pitted Alberta and the federal government against B.C.'s government since January.




Horgan's government has since sued Alberta to stop the bill.

The NDP government in B.C. came to power previous year - supported by the Green Party - after an election campaign in which it committed to working against the pipeline expansion owing to environmental concerns. Alberta has 20 days to file a statement of defence.

"We're going to be introducing legislation shortly which will inflict pain on British Columbia", she said in part.

The provincial Ministry of Environment said a flow metre has leaked about 100 litres of crude oil into the ground at the Darfield station.

If Alberta does restrict oil transports to B.C. gas pumps, he said, the province is prepared to ask a judge to make an order against it through an injunction. Kinder Morgan has given Canada until that date to find a way to guarantee that the Trans Mountain expansion could move forward without any more delays.

Not only is the growing resistance from the local community, indigenous rights groups and local and US-based environmental groups to the pipeline, but even the financial community thinks the economics and changing energy market is stacked against it.
