Vaughn Palmer: War of words with Alberta over beef, oil, wine, trade
11 February, 2018, 05:37
"I have to say that the actions of the Premier of British Columbia are consistent with trade agreements that we have signed province to province as well as nationally".
"[The] prime minister could not have been clearer", Carr said.
In a series of tweets Rachel Notley calls "from the inbox", she shares messages she's received from British Columbians in the wake of her latest offensive in a growing dispute between the provinces over the proposed Kinder Morgan Trans-Canada pipeline expansion project.
I know the direct impact of spills because, as you know, the current Kinder Morgan pipeline has spilled 40,000 barrels since it was built, a lot of it in my home city of Burnaby, and we know directly what happens when you have bitumen spills in city limits.
According to the B.C. Wine Institute, 30 per cent of all wine sold in Alberta is from B.C., with a retail value of $160 million. "Lana Popham, the minister of agriculture, is reaching out to growers across the Okanagan".
Collins said she holds no sour grapes towards B.C. wineries and will bring the wines back to her menu once the pipeline dispute is resolved. This week, her government imposed a ban on about $70-million worth of wine imports from the Western province in response.
Notley herself drew attention to the non-coincidence during her news conference: "There is, I believe, a byelection in Kelowna right now". "I think Albertans should be embarrassed their premier is advocating for it".
"Punishing British Columbia wineries for something that they have nothing to do with is frankly amateurishly political", he said, adding he had no comment on the pipeline issue. And that's my only focus in the days, weeks and months ahead.
"I think if anything it's a shame for the people of Alberta because they're missing out on some really lovely wine and as an alternative they're probably going to be buying worldwide which doesn't help anyone in Canada".
"It's not the government's intention to respond in any way to the provocation", he said, adding he hopes "cooler heads on the other side of the Rockies will prevail". "Alberta will not stand by and be the only province impacted by another province's refusal to play by the rules".
Still, Johnson said he feels the optics of the dispute between neighbouring provinces isn't positive. Not Alberta, not BC and not Canada. I do think the federal government, they can threaten, but we'll see how far they're prepared to go.
Alberta has also suspended electricity talks with BC after Victoria announced the ban on increased bitumen shipments to the West Coast.
Beyond mouthing passive platitudes supporting Trans Mountain, Trudeau has done nothing to advance a pipeline that has earned his government's blessing after it passed an exhaustive regulatory approval process. "We're going to continue to engage with the premiers on a regular basis", said Trudeau earlier on Wednesday.
"On the question of jurisdiction, no province can impinge on the national interest". "This should not be about pitting BC businesses against Alberta businesses". The feds may indicate what Ottawa could do to back up Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's insistence that the project can, should and will be built.
"I'm sure it will affect some people in the long term, but I'm hoping most people will be able to look past a political issue and just enjoy the wine that they've come to love", he said.
