Premier Rachel Notley: Bill 12 will give Albertans more control over resources

British Columbia's new government has launched legal challenges.

"The indemnification would allow Kinder Morgan to finish what they started, what they received federal and B.C. approval to do", he said.

"If Kinder Morgan is not interested in building the project, we think plenty of investors would be interested in taking on this project, especially knowing that the federal government believes it is in the best interest of Canadians and is willing to indemnify to make sure it gets built". His minority government exists at the pleasure of the Green Party, and on condition of his continued opposition to the project.

"Mr. Morneau and Mr. Trudeau know we're acting legally, correctly within our constitutional jurisdiction", Heyman said, noting B.C. continues to issue work permits for the project in a fair and responsible way. We think it's not in B.C.'s interest.

He urged Alberta Justice Minister Kathleen Ganley to first run the bill past the courts to confirm its legality.

"Horgan knows that he's not going to win in court, he knows that he's not going to win the plight of public opinion, he's hoping to scare away the investors", Nenshi said.

The pipeline expansion would run 715 miles from Edmonton, Alberta, to Barnaby, B.C., near Vancouver.

We've heard that it would be some sort of SUV. "The iNEXT project is our building kit for the future". The iNext will be one of 12 electric cars that the BMW Group will launch by the end of 2025.

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. The Liberals still don't have a concrete plan of action to remove delays.

Asked how Morneau's statement might impact the future of the pipeline, Horgan replied: "I'm not a seer". "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".

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says while she welcomes Ottawa's renewed commitment to backstopping the Trans Mountain pipeline, her government will still pass a bill that could punish B.C. with oil-related price spikes.

Horgan and Wilkinson were together in Chilliwack Wednesday visiting flooded communities.

But the B.C. government has gone to court to determine if it can block the project over environmental concerns.

"The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples clearly articulates the need to secure the free, prior and informed consent of Indigenous Peoples on any project that directly impacts them", it quoted vice-president Bob Chamberlin saying.

Morneau's talks with Kinder Morgan had their genesis a month ago, when Trudeau promised to deploy both financial and legislative tools to ensure the disputed expansion is able to proceed.
