Former BC premier Clark calls Horgan's pipeline opposition 'unconstitutional'

Bill Kelly: Time to end the pipeline-pinot squabble

In a follow-up email on Friday, Messmacher said it would be "premature" to provide further details on how a delay of Trans Mountain would affect Evraz's Regina workforce.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley announced Friday she's creating a task force to firm up what measures could be taken in response to B.C.'s proposed restrictions on diluted bitumen shipments.

"Mr. Horgan is doing his due diligence, and Mr. Wilkinson frankly doesn't even know the file", Weaver said.

Real environmental damage is possible if a bitumen spill were to occur.

Clark also called on Trudeau to step in "for the good of the country". "He's going to be in a fight either way, that's the fight I think they should pick, and I think it's one they would win on behalf of all Canadians". "Once we make a decision, we need to show that it goes through".

For the province of Alberta, the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is all about money, without consideration of environmental damage.

Finally, the B.C. government's action is a hard slap at Premier Notley's plans to essentially buy off pipeline opponents with an explosion of climate change policies, which include banning coal-power generation, escalating carbon taxes, hard caps on carbon-emission reductions, additional limits on air emissions from the oil and gas sector, and more spending on every "green dream" on the wish-list of pipeline opponents.

"They're absolutely wrong", McKenna said.

The newly minted leader of the BC Liberals is taking dead aim at Premier John Horgan.

Kenney described the plan as a way to ensure no such projects are built before accusing the Trudeau government of not doing enough to ensure the Kinder Morgan pipeline is built in the face of social and political opposition in B.C.

"The feds could stop it tomorrow if the Prime Minister exercised leadership", Kenney told CTV's Question Period.

But as law professor Dwight Newman observes, Canada's Constitution is crystal clear on this point, putting interprovincial transportation in the exclusive domain of the federal government.

"B.C. has not taken any action that we can take them to court over right now".

"What I do support is the fact that Premier Notley is doing exactly what she said, defending her economy, defending the people of Alberta, and Premier Horgan is doing exactly what he said, defending the interest of the people of British Columbia, of the coastline, and the environment", Singh said.

"The Trudeau government is failing to act in defending Canada's economic union, free trade and federal jurisdiction, which they could do by easily challenging, in court, B.C.'s attack on our energy industry".
