Manitoba premier calls for 'de- escalation' in Alberta-BC pipeline dispute

Moe suggests that rather than boycott B.C. wine, Saskatchewan will look at options either through the courts or interprovincial trade agreements. We don't take this lightly.

Last week we watched while Prime Minister Justin Trudeau held yet another round of town hall styled meetings this time in B.C., before what was largely a hostile audience filled with environmentalists, First Nations and people concerned with what is going to happen to the attractive B.C. coastline once the Kinder Morgan pipeline hits.

In Victoria, Horgan said while he and Notley may both be New Democrats, that is a secondary consideration. "He wants this project to fail and he is allowing the B.C. NDP to do it for him". "Lana Popham, the minister of agriculture, is reaching out to growers across the Okanagan".

"When marijuana is legalized in Canada, and it's possible for people of Alberta to by British Columbia-produced marijuana, I'm pretty sure the calls for boycotts of each others' goods and services from the other provinces are going to be gone".

One Alberta wine shop manager noted that, "While we are in support of the Alberta government and their efforts to improve the economy at home, we are disappointed by the recent decision made by the premier. We'll fight as hard as we can for our wineries".

When it comes to B.C. wines already on Alberta restaurant wine lists and wine store shelves, Premier Notley told Albertans to think about workers in her province's oil industry before they order. "My customers are still the same customers", she said.

"I have no intention of responding each day to events in other jurisdictions", said Horgan.
Horgan fears an escalating trade war could distract public and media attention from the rollout of his government's agenda for the year, starting next week in the legislature.

"As far as I know, there isn't an Alberta wine industry that can benefit from higher prices - this is purely political".

Those are some of the words from a new video posted by Alberta Premier Rachel Notley on Twitter after Tuesday's announcement that BC wine would be blocked from coming into the province. "I don't believe it's in anyone's interest to have duelling premiers".

Karen Collins, the owner of Asti Trattoria Italiana, dropped B.C. wines from her downtown restaurant on February 1, six days before Notley's announcement. "Kelowna West residents can send a message that it's time for the B.C. NDP to stop the wine war - and stand up for B.C.jobs by voting B.C. Liberal".

"We could see up to $100,000 lost in direct sales".

I have had discussions with the prime minister.

Not a chance said Horgan.

Kinder Morgan is also awaiting approval on its final route for the pipeline expansion before it can begin construction.

Meanwhile, senior federal and B.C. provincial officials were scheduled to meet in Vancouver on Thursday to discuss the issue.

The move is one of the province's responses to the B.C. government's proposed second phase of regulations for the transport of oil, seeking feedback on five points.
