Notley to skip premiers conference so she can focus on pipeline deal

The B.C. NDP government does agree with the Alberta NDP government on one point - cutting off shipments of oil, natural gas and refined fuels would indeed serve to punish this province.

"It would be surreal and exceptionally tone deaf for anyone to think we could politely discuss pharmacare and cannabis when one of the players is hard at work trying to choke the economic lifeblood of the province and the country", Notley said on social media Monday.

That decision came as British Columbia Premier John Horgan was working on a court challenge to seek judicial guidance on whether provinces can restrict what flows through pipelines for environmental reasons.

Horgan said last week that B.C. and Alberta disagree on the pipeline expansion, but that he and Notley are in agreement on a number of other issues, and have been friends for 20 years.

McMillan said if a pipeline that meets a high regulatory standard, has all the approvals, support from a majority of Canadians and the backing of the federal government can not get built, it sends a chilling signal that Canada is not open for business.

"It is not to stop the pipeline or prevent it", Eby argued.

"We need shovels in the ground", the advisory notes, which is why they'll be making the case for Team Trudeau to "step up and fulfill their constitutional roles and make this pipeline project a reality".

Three takeaways from the Warriors' Game 7 comeback win over the Rockets
The Warriors came from behind in the second half to beat the Rockets by 9 Monday night, winning 101-92. The Rockets star threw a shove in Green's direction because good deeds can't be rewarded, apparently.

"A catastrophic oil spill, and our ability to clean it up, would compromise that economic activity". "Second, it provides certainty that Kinder Morgan is requesting in order to allow them to continue their work in constructing the Trans Mountain Pipeline", Black said during the senate's third reading of the bill, calling it "extraordinarily straightforward".

"Albertans, British Columbians and all Canadians should understand that if the path forward for the pipeline through B.C.is not settled soon, I am ready and prepared to turn off the taps".

"We really want solidarity with the business community across industries and across the Rockies", he said in an earlier phone interview.

The news comes as the project has been pegged back by numerous regulatory delays that could see construction stretch beyond the latter half of 2020, costing Kinder Morgan vast sums of money that has resulted in the firm threatening to abandon the project.

Statements of claim contain information that has not been proven in court.

Next day, Alberta energy minister Margaret McCuaig-Boyd expanded on the threat on the floor of the Alberta legislature.
