Notley Uses Scathing Tweet To Announce She'll Skip Premiers Meetings

He was hoping to kickstart a conversation about how the federal government can be more engaged in the file while meeting with Western premiers, and he said Wednesday "I hope we have" done so.

She says she's tried in the past to have that conversation but so far, the federal NDP leader has declined.

Premier Scott Moe wants the federal government to "take up residence" in B.C.to get Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project built.

Advocating the project in a Vancouver Sun editorial, Notley wrote, "We can get a fair return for our oil produced under an emissions cap or we can see those resources evaporate".

Ms. Notley refused to attend the meeting, saying she was busy trying to secure a deal to salvage the pipeline project ahead of a company-imposed May 31 deadline.

The pipeline has driven a deep wedge between Alberta and B.C. and their respective NDP governments.

"It's a very divisive and important issue", said Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister. "We're taking money off kitchen tables of Canadians every single day because we are not working effectively together as premiers".

SpaceX launches five Iridium satellites and twin science spacecraft
GRACE-FO similarly consists of twin satellites, orbiting 220km (137 miles) apart at an altitude of 490km (304 miles). The McLean, Virginia, company now has 55 Iridium NEXT satellites in orbit.

The company, along with Alberta and Ottawa, blames the B.C. government for creating uncertainty for the project.

She and other Alberta ministers made similar statements when Bill 12 was introduced, debated and passed, leaving no doubt that "its objective was to authorize the government of Alberta to reduce supplies of crude oil, natural gas and refined fuels to cause economic harm to British Columbians in order to punish and put pressure on B.C".

"We're going to be introducing legislation shortly which will inflict pain on British Columbia", she said in part.

"A significant percentage of the gasoline and diesel consumed in British Columbia is imported from Alberta refineries, either by pipeline, train or tanker truck", the B.C. statement of claim concedes. "For Alberta, all other issues had to be subservient to that", he said.

On April 8, Kinder Morgan Limited (KML) suspended all non-essential activities and related spending on its $7.4 billion oil pipeline expansion project in the face of mounting legal challenges from British Columbia.

Mr. Horgan told reporters on Wednesday the two cases are different.

The B.C. NDP government does agree with the Alberta NDP government on one point - cutting off shipments of oil, natural gas and refined fuels would indeed serve to punish this province. "There's a distinct difference between those two things".
