Alberta boycotts BC wine in pipeline dispute

Premier Stephen Mc Neil delivers the state-of-the-province speech at a business luncheon in Halifax on Wednesday Feb. 7 2018. Nova Scotia Premier Stephen Mc Neil says he shares the concerns expressed by Manitoba's Brian Pallister over increasing inter-pro

"I'm expecting the federal government to help solve this dispute between the provinces".

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

Grande Prairie Mayor Bill Given said the dispute places Peace Country municipalities in an awkward position.

For McMillan, however, the impact of the conflict reaches further than just Alberta.

Notley said she is prepared to risk being hit by fines under the New West Partnership trade agreement. Oil and gas, along with agriculture and forestry, form its economic backbone, he added.

Industry advocates will look to British Columbia's government for solutions to the ban, Prodan said, including better access to shelf space in government-run liquor stores. "Otherwise, I would examine other markets like Saskatchewan or Manitoba or B.C".

Horgan says the proposals about bitumen came from his conversations with British Columbians and intentions to answer their questions about the consequences of a catastrophic spill. "For a leader of a government to goad another jurisdiction to take action against another is provocative".

It's a message Hitchen said just might work.

Carr said Thursday that Ottawa has already intervened on previous delays through the National Energy Board, which exempted Kinder Morgan from some delayed permits in Burnaby, B.C., and approved a dispute resolution process for future permitting issues.

The White House: Donald Trump Asked for a Military Parade
"All options are being considered, including linking the parade to a significant event, perhaps a historical event", said Col. The United States has previously held military parades to mark the end of wars, most recently in 1991 after the the Gulf War.

The declaration demands states obtain "free, prior and informed consent, " from Indigenous communities before approving resource extraction on Indigenous land. "You know the money is staying in Alberta", he said.

"For the folks in Vancouver who don't understand the impacts of how significant this sector is, it's hard for them to appreciate that".

People across the country have taken to social media to pledge their own support, using hashtags like #WarOfTheRosès and #PinotNotPipelines alongside photos of B.C. wine. "I figured I'd make such a small dent alone that it wouldn't be noticeable", Collins said. "We're very supportive of it". We want it done responsibly.

The president of the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce is publicly calling on the premiers of Alberta and stop what it calls the "rhetoric" on inter-provincial trade and instead find ways to enhance the economies of both provinces.

Lori Ackerman, mayor of Fort St. John, B.C., says the federal government needs to step in. We do have wine in Alberta and we don't know if they will pull our stock and send it back?

The back and forth between the provincial governments in BC and Alberta, respectively, continues.

Municipalities in the B.C. Peace region are jurisdictionally British Columbian, Ackerman said, but are culturally, economically and geographically attached to Alberta.

Christle Pope of Unsworth Vineyards in Mill Bay said the ban comes at a bad time because the industry was pushing to open up inter-provincial sales.

She adds this decision wasn't easy but it doesn't have to be this way. It produces wine in B.C. for owners who could be based elsewhere, including Alberta. With a throne speech next week, he said he would not be distracted, and he hopes "cooler heads on the other side of the Rockies will prevail".
