Former BC premier Clark calls Horgan's pipeline opposition 'unconstitutional'

Former BC premier Clark calls Horgan's pipeline opposition 'unconstitutional'

The move would have a direct impact on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, which was OK'd in 2016 by the federal government but has faced delays and opposition in B.C. ever since.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has launched a set of "online tools" to encourage Canadians to stand with Alberta in its fight with B.C. over the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion.

Kinder Morgan is already a full year behind on its project, with completion now expected in late-2020.

"What I do support is the fact that Premier Notley is doing exactly what she said, defending her economy, defending the people of Alberta, and Premier Horgan is doing exactly what he said, defending the interest of the people of British Columbia, of the coastline, and the environment", Singh said. "It's time to allow the democratic representatives of Albertans have their say, and to show the rest of Canada that we are united in the defence of our jobs and economy".

That proposal lead Notley to ban B.C. wine and halt talks on buying this province's electricity.

"I think that what we need to do is not be talking to each other inside this building, but rather speaking to people across this country about the import of our position, and so that's what we're going to do".

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

She introduced an opposition motion in the House of Commons on Monday calling on the federal government to make public no later than February 15, its specific plan to get the pipeline built.

Kenney commended the Premier for appointing a Task Force to advise government on the issue, but argued if the government was willing to seek input from lobbyists, bankers and academics, it was also time also seek input from Alberta's elected representatives.

Construction began on the Westridge Marine Terminal where the pipeline ends in Burnaby, September 2017, but construction on the pipeline itself is still awaiting final permits and route approvals.

There are billions more in federal funding for infrastructure projects that could be used as a political football, if relations between Ottawa and B.C. sour the way they did under Glen Clark's NDP government in the 1990s.

Female former MPs say the current approach the government and federal parties are taking to deal with the Hill's harassment and the sexual misconduct problem is far better than during their tenure when issues were...

She said her government will assess signals out of B.C. and Ottawa each day as it figures out its next steps in the ongoing dispute.

The problem is, provinces don't have the authority to regulate what goes through pipelines. "That is simply not an option", he told the Commons.
