Notley to skip premiers conference to focus on pipeline deal

"Unfortunately, both Alberta and Canada refused our proposals".

It's the latest legal wrangling over the $7.4-billion project, which would twin an existing pipeline between Strathcona County near Edmonton and Burnaby, B.C.

Alberta responded with a boycott of B.C. wine.

The dispute over Kinder Morgan's (KMI, OTCPK:KMLGF) Trans Mountain pipeline still loomed large at today's Western Premiers Conference in Yellowknife, NWT, as Alberta's representatives did not sign the communique out of the meeting because it did not include a statement of shared support of the pipeline. "A company can not resolve differences between governments".

Whereupon Notley fired up a threat to (as she put it in an April 8 posting on social media) "to impose seriously economic consequences on British Columbia if its government continues on its present course".

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

Bond 25: Universal Will Distribute The Daniel Craig Film Internationally
In a statement to Deadline , the pair said they are "delighted" to confirm Boyle and Craig for the 2019 film. Boyle previously said of the rumours: "We're working on a script at the moment and we'll see what happens".

"But quite honestly right now, we're very close to some very important decisions that have to be made". She didn't directly address a question as to whether delaying the proclamation was a strategy to prevent B.C. from taking Alberta to court. "It is to ensure that we have the protections in place for when the pipeline is built and is turned on", he says. "You are the Defendant", reads a claim filed by the BC government in Alberta's Court of Queen's Bench. "A significant disruption in the supply of gasoline, diesel, and crude oil from Alberta would cause B.C. irreparable harm". The wealthier, more populated and oil-rich province of Alberta is leading the charge against B.C., with Saskatchewan cast in a supporting role.

It's a powerful argument, relying as it does on the words of Alberta politicians themselves about their intentions in crafting Bill 12. However, it won't be proclaimed until the government settles on regulations to accompany the new law.

Premier John Horgan previously said if the bill was passed, his government would sue and his government is following through on that promise.

But there's ample indication of the New Democrats having darker designs on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

Repeated court cases have spooked Kinder Morgan.

"It is not to stop the pipeline".
