Alberta Lifting Retaliatory Measures in Pipeline Dispute with BC

BC Premier John Horgan is putting on hold his government's move to restrict increased shipments of diluted bitumen while the matter goes to court.

Alberta is lifting retaliatory measures in its pipeline dispute with BC and allowing wine to flow freely across the provincial boundary once again. BC Premier John Horgan announcing late Thursday that his government would put on hold its move to restrict increased shipments of diluted bitumen while the matter goes to court. Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says BC is "stepping back from the brink" and that's a good thing. She also says she's confident the courts will not give BC rights it does not possess, that the constitution will be upheld and that Alberta will have seen the last of these threats. Notley says public servants will also be resuming talks on an electricity purchase contract with BC, something that was suspended earlier this month when the dispute began. -Tina Giesbrecht
