Notley blasts move against Park-based pipeline

PCA voices strong opposition to B.C. Trans Mountain decision

Jason Kenney, the former federal cabinet minister who now leads Alberta's opposition United Conservative Party, said it's time to up the ante, including blocking Alberta oil exports to B.C. and putting tolls on B.C. gas flowing through Alberta to the U.S. Turning off the oil taps would be a last resort among a range of measures, but Kenney said he is proposing it to get people's attention.

The government is setting up an independent scientific panel to make recommendations to Heyman on the question of "if and how heavy oils can be safely transported and cleaned up, if spilled". But in the meantime, and instead, the federal government can intervene.

Here's the problem: That promise has no credibility because there have been zero consequences for undermining it, as B.C.'s NDP/Green government keeps doing.

"B.C. isn't just taking a run at working people in Alberta and in B.C., they're taking a run at the authority of the federal government", she said in a press conference Tuesday afternoon. After that, he proposed reducing contracts with B.C. Hydro, or periodically withholding permits for the shipment of Alberta crude through the current Kinder Morgan pipeline.

"We know that getting our oil resources to new markets across the Pacific is absolutely essential.We need this pipeline and we're going to move forward with it responsibly like I committed to", Trudeau was reported to state.

"This is a landmark project for Canada that was allowed to proceed with 157 conditions, the approval of the NEB (National Energy Board) and three levels of government", Progressive Contractors Association of Canada (PCA) BC regional director Rieghardt van Enter said in a statement.

The premier called it the first step in Alberta's fight against B.C.'s move to obstruct the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion project.

"We won't get the Oceans Protection Plan investments".

The mayor added the environmental regulations should have been put in place a long time ago, by the B.C. Liberals.

A court case wouldn't be as simple as it sounds, said Eric Adams, a University of Alberta expert in constitutional law.

Notley says they could have meant $500 million a year if finalized, and don't include potential buys from the Site C dam. It's way too premature to talk about those sorts of issues.

"The decision we took on the Trans Mountain Expansion remains in the national interest", he said. The BC Government has every right to consult on whatever it pleases with its citizens.

BC's proposal creates more uncertainty for Kinder Morgan's already-delayed Trans Mountain expansion project that would almost triple the capacity of its pipeline system to 890,000 barrels a day.
