Former vice-president Al Gore's anti-pipeline tweet irritates Alberta premier

NDP spending 1.2 million Trans Mountain advocacy campaign ahead of May 31 deadline

The $7.4-billion project would almost triple the flow of diluted bitumen and other products between Edmonton and Burnaby.

Last month, Kinder Morgan stopped all non-essential spending on the project and said it wants assurances by the end of this month that the expansion can proceed.

Alberta has spent $1.29 million on this nationwide advertising campaign, $700,000 dedicated to advertising in British Columbia, including digital board locations in Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna, Kamloops and the West Kootenays, Abbotsford global and Nanaimo regional airports.

Alberta and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government are in discussions with the company to strike a joint financial arrangement to ensure the project gets built.

Trudeau said the pipeline was approved by his government in 2016 after a rejigged environmental assessment and Indigenous consultation process, and only in concert with the Liberal climate change and oceans protection plan.

Speaking to reporters in Edmonton, Notley announced Alberta is also seeking full status in the B.C. court reference case, announced last month by B.C. Premier John Horgan. Mr. Robertson "doesn't understand there are other cities than just his city - there are other people in the province of B.C., quite frankly, who are struggling to find employment".

Her government is close to passing legislation that would give Alberta the power to restrict and redirect flows of oil, gasoline and natural gas to maximize profits.

Ms. Notley said his remarks demonstrate "a tremendous lack of knowledge" about the country's wealth generators.

"We will marshal every constitutional and legal argument available to make sure BC does not succeed in playing chicken with the rest of the Canadian economy", says Notley.

Less than three weeks before an ultimatum for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is set to expire, the Alberta Premier still expressed certainty the controversial project to ship more diluted bitumen will go ahead.

"We must deploy this tool with a cool hand, not an angry one", Notley said. The industry has said new pipelines are necessary to spur jobs and growth.

"It is a matter of putting pressure at the right place at the right time to get the outcome that we need", she said, referring to Bill 12.
