BC won't boycott Alberta beef amidst trade spat with our neighbours: Horgan

Saskatchewan won't ban BC wine imports, premier says

"I think there's a role there for them", he said.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley announced Tuesday the province would boycott all wines from its western neighbour.

The B.C. government is looking at restricting the expansion of bitumen through the province until it's satisfied a spill can be cleaned up, which was countered by the threat of a lawsuit from Alberta along with a ban on B.C. wine imports.

The Tweets only include first names and the community Notley claims they came from.

"The premier has stumbled into this reckless trade war with Alberta, he's the one who pushed the wine sector into the line of fire", said Stewart.

Prior to Notley's letter Tweetfest, Boundary-Similkameen MLA Linda Larson, who represents several wine regions in the South Okanagan and Similkameen, fired out a Tweet of her own.

The boycott over B.C. wines is being felt in the Gas City.

On Wednesday, B.C. Premier John Horgan said he wouldn't retaliate against Alberta in what looks like an escalating trade fight between the provinces. About 95 per cent of Canadian wine sold in Alberta liquor stores is from B.C.

But just last week Horgan suggested the opposite: it would be "premature" for Alberta to file a legal challenge against B.C. because "there's nothing to take to court".

"We're continuing to discuss and engage with the B.C. government, with the Alberta government", he said.

Mattis addresses White House reporters about budget uncertainty
Mattis said another such shutdown would have "terrible ramifications" for the military. Mattis, a retired Marine Corps general, told reporters at the White House.

He said that he doesn't sell much B.C. wine, but most of his liquor and wine is imported from overseas through the Port of Vancouver during the winter months from October to April.

Notley herself drew attention to the non-coincidence during her news conference: "There is, I believe, a byelection in Kelowna right now".

A spokesperson for the B.C. Wine Institute said the organization was shocked by the move.

Horgan is seemingly quite content to receive Alberta oil that keeps the bulk of British Columbia vehicles moving.

The Trans Mountain expansion is a controversial pipeline proposal of the Texas-based Kinder Morgan, that upon completion, will triple the capacity of an existing system to ship up to 890,000 barrels of oil per day from the oilsands to Burnaby, B.C. "I don't think anyone is missing the agenda that they're pursuing".

"It's not the government's intention to respond in any way to the provocation", he said, adding he hopes "cooler heads on the other side of the Rockies will prevail".

"It's well known that premier Notley and I have been friends in the past".

"We need to stop this wine war, as it doesn't benefit anyone and only threatens more jobs", said Ben Stewart, the opposition B.C. Liberals' by-election candidate for Kelowna-West, at the heart of the province's wine country. "Their passion and dedication to their craft is something we have been proud to share with our customers over the years and it hurts us to know that they are the ones being punished by this misguided decision". "The announced escalation of retaliatory trade measures will leave businesses of all sizes, their owners and their employees caught in the crossfire", it said.

Until there is greater certainty, the project will not invest heavily on construction, which under the latest schedule is expected to start in late summer, with completion expected in December, 2020, Anderson said.
