Notley lifts ban on BC wine imports in Alberta

Horgan said his government is filing a constitutional reference case on the issue, which has been at the centre of the trade war between B.C. and Alberta. The four safeguards are: spill response time, geographic response plans, compensation for loss of public and cultural use of land and application of regulations to marine spills.

While the panel works, the ministry has proposed a ban on any increase in heavy crude shipments.

Alberta's economic development minister is shrugging off a legal challenge filed by British Columbia over Alberta's ban on B.C. wine. With the united Conservative Party at her heels and her economy still largely dependent on oil and gas development and sales, she had to counter a blatantly unconstitutional action by B.C. "The B.C. government has indicated they will not move forward on that threat".

"What triggered the the notion that the B.C. government could enact legislation of what goes into an interprovincial pipeline", Premier Rachel Notley told a Thursday news conference.

However, the Weather Service cautioned that there remains some uncertainty in the exact location and timing of the heaviest snow. KSTP Chief Meteorologist Dave Dahl said 4 to 8 inches of snow is expected in the Twin Cities. 6 to 9 inches of snow is possible.

Despite the federal government's multiple approvals of the expansion - once in 2017, and again in February under the new approval process, debate has taken a tense turn in the political arena in recent weeks, pitting the once cordial neighbouring provinces against each other. "That is simply not an option".

"The reason for doing it is that there's a violation of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (by Alberta), an important agreement signed by all provinces and territories", Ralston said in a scrum with reporters at the Legislature.

"While the claim that John Horgan and the NDP have made does appear to resonate with a substantial number of Canadians, in action, they're less inclined to think that the decision to delay the project was the right one", Angus Reid said in the report.

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

Moncler invited designers like Valentino's Pierpaolo Piccioli to basically reinterpret the puffer jacket, and they delivered. The idea behind Genius is to offer new products continually to consumers with the aim of appealing to diverse consumers.

Horgan denied backing down, saying the intention is to have cooler heads prevail. And while it's still a small factor in our market, Manitoba is one of just a few provinces that allows direct-to-consumer shipment of wines from wineries in B.C., Ontario and beyond.

"We're back to status quo", said organizer Christine Coletta.

The British Columbia Wine Institute issued a statement to the effect: "The BC Wine Institute yesterday notified the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) of its intent to challenge the constitutionality of the Alberta BC wine ban and seek an injunction to end it".

Both Notley and the Trudeau government expressed confidence the courts will find B.C. can't impinge on federal authority in this area.
