BC-Trans Mountain Pipeline

/ 97.3 The Eagle
             Alberta’s premier is rebuking B-C’s opponents of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, saying no province or region can hold the economy of another province hostage. It’s Rachel Notley’s strongest statement on the issue since the outcome of B-C’s election last week cast doubt on the project. Notley told a news conference that there are no tools available for one province to block a federal government decision to approve a project that’s in the larger national interest. B-C’s New Democrats, who promised to use “every tool in the tool box” to stop the Kinder Morgan project, won 41 seats in the election, leaving Christy Clark’s Liberals one seat shy of a majority government.
