Federal government will intervene if needed on Trans Mountain: Carr

Federal government will intervene if needed on Trans Mountain: Carr

In response, B.C. Premier John Horgan called on Alberta to end its "threatening position" and said his government will respond to the boycott, though he did not specify how. "I'm here for B.C., not Alberta".

It was approved under the discredited process under Stephen Harper that McKenna would dismantle with her legislation, not given the full review Trudeau had promised during a campaign stop in British Columbia in 2015.

At least one Albertan stocked up to weather the storm, he added, saying a man came to their vineyard in Langley, B.C., on Tuesday to grab a few bottles on his way home. On his way to the US for a four-day trip in San Francisco, including a meeting with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, eBay CEO Devin Wenig and other tech leaders, Trudeau said he will stand up for the national interest.

"We get both sides of the argument", she said, adding that the prime minister needs to intervene to protect municipalities like hers that are caught between the two sides.

The comments come amid a growing trade battle between Alberta and British Columbia over the project, which would almost triple crude shipments on the line to 890,000 barrels per day.

The pipeline in question is the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline that has been in talks for a while but has also been subject to serious speculation in regards to the environment.

"I'm expecting the federal government to help solve this dispute between the provinces", said Anderson. In B.C.'s case, Horgan's NDP government holds a minority of Legislature seats and is only in power thanks to the anti-pipeline Greens. "The Premier of Alberta has taken a course, but I'm not going to be distracted by that".

Cory Morgan, who owns a pub in Priddis, says he's on board with the idea, removing all B.C. offerings from his menu. "Otherwise, I would examine other markets like Saskatchewan or Manitoba or B.C".

Todd Buhler, who runs Epic Imports in Chestermere, says a good proportion of his business comes from B.C. products.

The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission is a little different from the rest of the provinces, Hynes-Dawson said in a brief interview Wednesday.

"That's not going to affect what I like and what I purchase".

CBC News notes that if Kenney somehow convinces the Alberta government to stop shipping oil and cut the gas shipments to its western neighbor, it won't just raise prices at the pump across B.C. It would also result in increased tanker traffic along the B.C. coast-something that the province's government has spoken firmly against.

"They (the licensees) would order... through a liquor agent and then we (the AGLC) would essentially order in what is being requested", explained Hynes-Dawson.

"This action will harm the B.C. wine industry", she said.

"The small independent wine makers, family-run businesses; this is their only livelihood. I don't think anyone is missing the agenda that they're pursuing".

"In the coming days, the Government of Alberta will be monitoring the situation and preparing further action". "We're losing investment to Iran, and that's hard for Canada to hear".

Premier Rachel Notley says Alberta has a constitutional right to export through British Columbia, come hell or high water.
