Designate Moe backs Notley in BC pipeline dispute

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Earlier this week, the B.C. NDP government announced it was planning new restrictions on the movement of diluted bitumen from Alberta through B.C.by pipeline or rail, restrictions that appear created to try to halt the twinning of the Trans Mountain pipeline.

In a move tantamount to an attempt to obstruct a $5 million project to expand Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain pipeline from Alberta, British Columbia announced potential new oil shipment rules on January 30.

Litwin is encouraging project supporters to stand up and be counted.

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

"The people of B.C. need to know that there is effective spill management across the province and, in particular, for our most environmentally sensitive areas, including coastlines", George Heyman, minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy, said. He said he will establish an independent scientific advisory panel to study the issue.

In a statement on his official Facebook page, Moe says the BC government is hiding "under the guise of environmental protection" and are rejecting the notices of the Canadian National Energy Board Act and Canadian Environmental Protection Act regarding the legitimate safety of transporting goods through pipelines being approved following inspection and review.

Trudeau told CBC he wasn't going to "opine" on the provincial dispute.

"We won't get the oceans protections plan investments, we won't get a national price on carbon and we would never meet our Paris targets".

Legally, the dispute is not as black and white as the duelling NDP governments suggest, Adams said.

As the feud between B.C. and Alberta escalates over the latest round of regulations over the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, Premier John Horgan is standing firm and denying he's being provocative.

Notley said she thanked Trudeau for his assurance that the project will go ahead, but the federal government has to do more to ensure the pipeline's expansion.

"The reason that's not possible at the moment is that they're both taking hard line positions where that compromise is not possible".

Two Canadian provinces are engaged in a spat over pipeline politics.
