Notley giving BC, Ottawa 'a little space' to discuss BC pipeline issue

Notley giving BC, Ottawa 'a little space' to discuss BC pipeline issue

Premier Rachel Notley announced Alberta's strong-arm move in response to British Columbia trying to throw off the construction of the Sherwood Park-based Trans Mountain pipeline expansion - with Kinder Morgan's starting terminal located just off Baseline Road and 17th Street, and the line running through Burnaby, the Pacific coast. "What he's doing is trying to set up a system where it can not get to "yes" and deliberately frustrating it so the project will get cancelled".

It's unclear whether the next steps might include more bans on B.C. goods, and Notley would not elaborate on the options she's considering.

This time, she didn't withdraw from negotiations to buy B.C. electricity.

Even before the Justin Trudeau government released its new environmental assessment rules last week, I thought there was little chance the feds would come to our defence.

Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr says the federal government won't entertain any attempt on the part of stop the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. But that's why Prodan's quote of rallying people "on either side of the divide" is important, because the ban not only secures Alberta's fight for the pipeline, but could also likely result in B.C. residents fighting for the trade ban to end. A unanimous motion by the legislature calling on the federal government to use its constitutional powers would be much more effective and much more timely.

Legislature adjourns: New Mexico lawmakers boost spending, wrestle with crime
The state's existing revenues will total about $2 billion, which makes about $4 billion available for spending. Joseph Cervantes, D-Las Cruces, voted for the crime package but said lawmakers need to do more to fight crime.

"That would help us avoid provincial government monopolies that discriminate against Canadian wines", he says, adding it makes no sense Canadian products can't be shipped to a Canadian. If they do make such a move, it's not a hit we can afford in Alberta.

One of those critics was Clark.

President of the B.C. Wine Institute Miles Prodan said they are being used as "a political football".

Premier Rachel Notley told reporters Monday in Edmonton that B.C. and Ottawa officials are now in talks to resolve what she has branded that province's illegal, unconstitutional actions. "Nor will I be distracted by the events that are taking place in other jurisdictions".

United Conservative Party Leader Jason Kenney asked Friday for the legislature to reconvene for an emergency debate on the pipeline battle and the need for Ottawa to intervene.

Tiger Woods misses cut at Genesis Open
It will be just his 25th career missed cut on TOUR in 330 starts once the second round is finished early Saturday. But after two tournaments and six rounds of competitive golf, Woods said he was ready to take the next step.

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

Notley has accused Horgan's government of making a "provocative and unconstitutional" threat.

Tombe said B.C. does not have a legal leg to stand on, in its authority to restrict oil from Alberta.

"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. Neither is expected to be in Ottawa this weekend for a national NDP convention.

3 times Anushka was trolled for Virat Kohli's poor show
Results-wise it could look embarrassing so I understand the question, but we're more disappointed than anything else, he added. I am the head coach of the Indian national team and I have seen him bat like this across all conditions and in all formats.
