Alberta Plans Economic Retaliation Against B.C. in Pipeline Dispute

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley speaks at a cabinet meeting at the provincial legislature in Edmonton, amid uncertainty over the future of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. Kinder Morgan has announced it is suspending all non-essential activities and related spending for the pipeline project, citing continued opposition from the B.C. government. The premier says her government plans to introduce legislation this week to give Alberta the power to reduce oil shipments to B.C. in retaliation. (April 9, 2018) (no interpretation)
