Alberta passes legislation to cut off oil supply to BC

Horgan fails to realize that the B.C. government employees' pension fund invests heavily in the oil-and-gas industry, both in Canada and the US, because of the excellent return on the investment dollars. The neighbouring west coast province of British Columbia, along with environmentalists and several aboriginal groups have been mounting a strong resistance.

The route of the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion from the oil sands in Alberta to a loading facility in Burnaby British Columbia.

"I don't think there is anything I can say that would reassure some of my critics that have such little faith in my government getting anything done for Alberta", he said, before stating: "I can tell you my government is doing, and will continue to do, everything necessary to defend federal jurisdiction. and get this pipeline built".

"We see a path to an outcome that will assure that we can get the advantage that we're seeking", Morneau said.

Meanwhile Eby has written to Kathleen Ganley, Alberta's minister of justice and solicitor general, encouraging her to refer the Preserving Canada's Prosperity Act to the Alberta courts to assess its constitutionality. "It's really a message to Alberta that it should be referred to the courts as we referred our bill to the courts".

BJP resorting to "horsetrading", alleges Kumaraswamy
The JD (S)-Congress tie-up should remind the saffron crowd that it does not have a monopoly over political chicanery. The party has also managed to substantially improve its seat count and vote share from the 2013 assembly election.

Horgan said blaming B.C. for the pipeline impasse is focusing on the wrong target.

In a Calgary Sun column published Wednesday, Kenney was quoted attacking Trudeau's ability to resolve a dispute that has delayed construction on the Trans Mountain pipeline, which would triple the amount of Alberta oil flowing to tankers in B.C. Trudeau doesn't have "the foggiest idea what's going on", Kenney said in the column. "From day one, Horgan has known that he can not block this project and chose to play politics instead of working for the best interests of British Columbians".

Morneau's statements are "rhetoric and hyperbole", Premier Horgan said. His offer of covering losses caused by B.C.'s delaying of the project stands for other investors as well, he said.

The $7.4-billion project was approved by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government in 2016, but since then has been hamstrung by permit delays and court challenges in B.C.

Earlier Wednesday, Finance Minister Bill Morneau said the federal government is willing to offer an "indemnity" to help ease the political risks for any investors to ensure the pipeline expansion can proceed. Chamberlin is chief of the Kwikwasut'inuxw Haxwa'mis First Nation. "We're waiting for Canada to follow suit".
