BC, Alberta relations tense at Western Premiers Conference

"I'm very concerned that we are missing an opportunity here in this nation to advance our economic benefit here, not just in Saskatchewan, but in Western Canada and the nation of Canada", Moe said.

"They are still reserving the right to play legal rope-a-dope until the cows come home", Notley said. "They've made some decisions, and we're going to inflict pain on those economic decisions so they understand what they've done".

The NDP filed a reference case in at the B.C. Court of Appeal last month to determine if it has jurisdiction to regulate heavy oil shipments.

British Columbia is also suing Alberta for passing a law that will allow it to choke off the supply of fuel to B.C., which Ms. Notley says she is prepared to use.

Hoffman told reporters on Wednesday in Yellowknife she agrees with those initiatives, "but pharmacare doesn't grow on trees". "In order to protect and improve the things that matter to people, like pharmacare, we need a strong, functioning national economy".

"A significant disruption in the supply of gasoline, diesel, and crude oil from Alberta to British Columbia would cause British Columbia irreparable harm", the document asserts.

Notley says she is not attending the conference because her time is better spent making sure the pipeline project goes ahead, and that the government is close to some important decisions before a May 31 deadline set by pipeline owner Kinder Morgan.
