Proposed pipeline regulations shouldn't start a 'trade war:' BC premier

PCA voices strong opposition to B.C. Trans Mountain decision

PCA voices strong opposition to B.C. Trans Mountain decision

The group representing 36-thousand B-C businesses says not everyone agrees with the NDP government's proposal to restrict new shipments of bitumen off the coast until it can determine that shippers are prepared and able to properly clean up a spill.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley's promise to suspend electricity talks with British Columbia over a pipeline dispute may not carry much weight, according to energy experts.

"We're just going to reiterate that the decision we made was in the national interest, and we're going to move forward with that decision, which means we're going to get the Trans Mountain pipeline built".

This could potentially jeporadize the construction of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline.

Before a crowd of 1,700 people in the community of Nanaimo, B.C., Mr. Trudeau said most Canadians understand the need to balance the environment with economic development.

Notley gave few details on what the suspended energy talks were about, but Blake Shaffer at the C.D. Howe Institute said there have been informal talks for some time to use the full 1,200 megawatt capacity of the existing power lines running between the two provinces, rather than the 800 megawatts now allowed. "We didn't know this was a formal thing that could really happen, and here we are being told it's not a thing".

Apart from that, applications like Launcher, Gallery, Weather, and File Manager have been updated to their latest versions. Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has released the OxygenOS 5.0.2 update for OnePlus 5 smartphone.

The expansion project would triple capacity along the pipeline between Edmonton and Burnaby, B.C., and increase tanker traffic off the coast seven fold. On Friday, Mr. Horgan accused Alberta of overreacting.

Horgan said his government's announcement that it would consult on new regulations should not set off a "trade war between good friends".

"I don't believe it's about taking on anybody".

Trudeau said Canada needs to get Alberta's oil safely to markets other than the United States.

"I don't doubt for a minute Premier Notley's conviction and passion for Alberta, nor do I dismiss the responsibilities of the Prime Minister, but I am not going to put aside my responsibilities to stand up to defend British Columbia", he said.
