B.C. files constitutional challenge of Alberta’s fuel restriction law

Saanich-Gulf Islands MP Elizabeth May speaking at Deep Cove Elementary School in North Saanich recently

A federal Court of Appeal challenge led by First Nations is seeking to cancel the federal environmental certificate, which could send the project back to the drawing board.

Eby said the Alberta and the federal government are causing delays by refusing to accept B.C.'s invitations to join legal cases, or take legal arguments straight to the Supreme Court of Canada where the outcomes are final.

With that deadline looming, B.C. business leaders flew to Edmonton last Thursday to show their backing for the project, which would almost triple the flow of diluted bitumen from the Alberta oilsands and increase tanker traffic sevenfold.

While Bill 12 has received royal assent, it has not been proclaimed.

On Tuesday, she complained that B.C.is seeking the power to limit oil exports while insisting Alberta must sell B.C. its fossil fuels on demand. His government has asked B.C.'s highest court to rule on whether B.C. can cap oil imports.

Alberta responded with a boycott of B.C. wine.

"If we were a long way away from a decision point on the pipeline, I maybe would spend 45 minutes chastising John Horgan in front of other premiers, but quite honestly, right now we're very close to a very complex decision with a lot of different moving parts", she said.

Kinder Morgan has ceased all non-essential spending on the $7.4-billion pipeline project that would twin the existing pipeline between Burnaby, B.C., and Edmonton. "A company can not resolve differences between governments".

Monitor: 26 Syria regime, 9 Russian Federation fighters killed in IS attack
Four Russian servicemen have been killed in Syria as a result of shelling by militants, the Russian Defense Ministry said. The injured were immediately taken to a Russian military hospital, but two of them died there, it said.

Alberta dropped out, but Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe will be attending the Western Premiers' Conference this week in the Northwest Territories. Alberta has 20 days to file a statement of defence.

Notley said the lawsuit is just one of several tactics to create uncertainty over the Kinder Morgan pipeline project.

"We think the stock itself is pricing in a less than 25-percent chance of the project going ahead", said Matthew Murphy, an analyst with investment bank Tudor, Pickering, Holt and Co.

"The deal has to get done with Kinder if the focus is to get the pipeline in service by 2020", McConaghy says, noting the cost and delays involved in bringing in a third party.

"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". "The other is gasoline or jet fuel to be used by citizens to move around freely", he said.

He added that constitutionally, provincial governments "can't use trade policy to punish one another".

Notley says Singh's opposition to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is premised on a lack of understanding of the economic stakes.
