Charts: British Columbians, Canadians split on Alberta-BC pipeline, trade war

Charts: British Columbians, Canadians split on Alberta-BC pipeline, trade war”

The latest actions by both provinces comes on the heels of an announcement from the British Columbia Wine Institute that it would be taking the Province of Alberta to court to end the embargo. Before the ads appeared, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley promised retaliatory measures if there is no progress on resolving the pipeline impasse.

Premier Horgan announced his provincial government would be moving forward with consultation around four bitumen spill safeguards while referring only to the courts the outstanding issue around B.C.'s constitutional right to protect B.C.'s coast.

Notley announced the lift of the ban on Thursday, following B.C. Premier John Horgan's announcement that the B.C. government will let the courts decide if B.C. can ban Alberta's increased bitumen exports.

Canadians are split on whether Alberta or right in the ongoing Trans Mountain dispute, according to a poll released Thursday.

Lawmakers Weigh In on Indictment of Gov. Greitens
Republicans have already announced they are launching an investigation into the indictment charge. Dowd Jr., says Greitens was willing to meet with Gardner but she declined the offer.

Opinions are split almost right down the middle when it comes to the federally-approved Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

The B.C. wine boycott is over and corks are popping all over the Calgary foodie community to celebrate.

We must remember that the premier of B.C. does not act alone running the government.

If the reference question is more nebulous and an obvious attempt to drag this process out further in the hopes Kinder Morgan simply gives up and abandons its plans, then Alberta will not be happy and nearly certainly bring back a boycott of B.C. products.

Uttar Pradesh to get a defence corridor
He congratulated the State for establishing itself on the path of development and prosperity in such a short timeframe. Adani Group today said it will invest Rs 35,000 crore in Uttar Pradesh over the next five years in various sectors.

"We'll need some time to review the court's decision on the injunction before determining what the next steps will be from there, but I can assure that we will continue to lobby and support our industry as well as our members", she said.

Under federal liquor laws provinces essentially have an "absolute right" to regulate what is and isn't being consumed, he said, yet the ban violates the spirit the Canada Free Trade Agreement. The reference will seek to reinforce B.C.'s constitutional rights to defend against the risks of a bitumen spill. The government of B.C. inevitably are appealing the board's rulings with the Federal Appeal Board.

The prime minister also said, in the same interview, that he was prepared to impose a national price on carbon on any province that doesn't introduce its own measures to make polluters pay.

It's possible that some B.C. wineries might have looked to other markets, such as Manitoba, to pick up the slack on sales they've lost in Alberta (their largest domestic market), but we certainly couldn't have made up the difference alone.

Boston Red Sox Sign JD Martinez
Per The Boston Globe's Pete Abraham, the Boston Red Sox remain "open" to signing free agent outfielder J.D. In the meantime, there's no other way to slice it: Martinez is a good (and necessary) get for the Red Sox.

But she also offered an olive branch of sorts to B.C. When asked is she herself would be sipping B.C. wine anytime soon, she said: "It's possible there may be B.C. wine soon again in our house".
