Response to AGLC halting BC wine imports

Rachel Notley has no change at winning another term if Kinder Morgan gets more delays

BC won't boycott Alberta beef amidst trade spat with our neighbours: Horgan

He added that he had no intention of retaliatory action against Alberta and dispelled the rumours about a possible ban on beef. He maintains his focus right now is on this month's budget.

Notley said the federal government has tools to resolve the impasse and that she will continue to push Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on it.

McNeil said it's in the country's best interests that Alberta and British Columbia - both now under NDP governments - sort out their differences.

"On the question of jurisdiction, no province can impinge on the national interest".

Horgan's New Democrats are in a governing alliance with the B.C. Green party, fiercely opposed to the Kinder Morgan pipeline that would pump Alberta's bitumen to our coast. "The Premier of Alberta has taken a course, but I'm not going to be distracted by that".

"The wine industry is very important to B.C. Not almost as important as the energy industry is to Alberta and Canada, but important nonetheless", said Notley.

"Access to these wines is essential to us, as we are able to support their efforts directly and help build the sort of food community that lies at the centre of why we even exist as a restaurant".

It's a fact, coal and other non-renewable resources will not be a sustainable industry forever.

"I don't know how much it will affect us", he said. "I think there's a role there for them", Anderson said. "British Columbians shouldn't be in the crossfire of NDP governments fighting". One test will be the byelection set for Valentine's Day in Kelowna-West, to fill the seat vacated by former Premier Christy Clark.

"Alberta doesn't grow grapes, so they don't do wine".

Protesters said in an email that they "physically intervened" and forced construction to a halt on the Trans Mountain pipeline.

Here's the stock market's big sell-off by the numbers
Net income in the fourth quarter rose to US$3.11bn, equivalent to US$1.64 a share, from US$415mln (22 cents) a year earlier. The Dow Jones Small-Cap Value TSM Index closed at 10,123.09 for a loss of -201.26 points or -1.95%.

In the days since, Alberta has suspended electricity purchase talks with B.C. and announced an embargo on the province's wine.

Still, Johnson said he feels the optics of the dispute between neighbouring provinces isn't positive.

But it shouldn't be up to Alberta to enforce Canada's Constitution.

Meanwhile, a number of Albertans have already taken up the cause, flooding social media with a #BoycottBC hashtag that highlights how people are turning their back on the province, scrapping vacation plans and spurning all B.C. products.

Evraz sent out a news release this week urging the B.C. government to not block the project, noting "thousands of Canadian jobs are touched by this project". They made that plain on Wednesday.

"We're going to continue to engage with the premiers on a regular basis".

"The Government of British Columbia can not infringe on federal jurisdiction that impact the national interest", he said.

"By boycotting B.C. wines in Alberta, our family-owned winery is going to be hurt financially as well as other B.C. wineries".

Other politicians are speaking up about the dispute. "This should not be about pitting BC businesses against Alberta businesses".

If you want to know where the prime minister is headed, it's a place called Nowhere where the only piece of playground equipment is a merry-go-round.

Tory Leader Andrew Scheer says Trudeau should end his USA trip early and come back to Canada to deal with this.
