Slim majority of Canadians, British Columbians now supports pipeline project; opposition remains strong

"It's become clear this particular investment may be untenable for a private party to undertake", said Kean.

Political attempts to strong-arm B.C. - such as Alberta cutting back oil exports to the province or Ottawa withholding infrastructure dollars - appear to be less effective in getting those now opposed to the project to say "yes".

He said the reference case could have implications in provincial-federal relations that go beyond the current dispute.

"We're pleased that the conversations to reduce or eliminate investor risks have accelerated significantly over the last little while", she said.

He reiterated Kean's comments that provincial and federal investment aren't relevant because certainty has to be ultimately resolved in British Columbia.

"It is deeply troubling that the prime minister is considering using public funds to absorb investor risk in this project", he said in a press release.

Proponents of the project are also raising the alarm.

"Many, many people oppose this, including (Indigenous) First Nations, the province of British Columbia, the residents of (the cities of) Vancouver and Burnaby", said Greenpeace UK campaigns director Pat Vendetti.

Dustin Rivers, an elected Squamish councillor and spokesman for the band council who goes by the traditional name Khelsilem, said the pipeline and planned tanker traffic "have not met our consent as a nation", adding "this project has not been in our interests". "These are rights and title holders and those rights and title holders have to be acknowledged and have to be respected".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Thursday he recognized the timelines on seeking a NAFTA trade agreement and was engaging as much as possible to meet an opportunity to make "significant progress". The pipeline was approved in 2016 with the support of the former B.C. Liberal government of Christy Clark.

"We're determined, particularly if the Court of Appeal question is lost and the project is going ahead, to ensure that we exercise every inch of our constitutional jurisdiction to ensure that we're regulating against the possibility of a spill", Heyman said.

Eby said the province is aware of the time factors involved and is hopeful of a speedy ruling.

Kenney fires back. The United Conservative leader says if Notley had taken his fight-back advice months ago "we might not find ourselves in this position".

Alberta's government said B.C.'s legal move is just another pipeline roadblock.

Equally important, the federal government must address the major concerns about expansion of oil production at a time of increased concern about climate change. Instead, they wanted reassurance that government uncertainty would be addressed.

On Sunday, he told the CBC the Trans Mountain expansion will be built despite the protests and the British Columbia government's continued battle against it in the courts.

"There is no business case for an expansion of Alberta's oilsands on the scale needed to justify the Keystone XL and Trans Mountain export pipelines because of one bare fact: there are zero foreign buyers who today will commit to decades-long purchase contracts for unrefined bitumen at a fixed price near US$80 per barrel", McKay wrote.
