Alberta to stop importing BC wine effective immediately

Horgan feels this is not a trade war and he's not threatening any retaliatory actions against our neighbours and that includes a ban on Alberta beef. I have had discussions with the prime minister.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley said the B.C. wine ban will remain in place as long as Victoria maintains its ban on increased bitumen shipments from Alberta to the West Coast.

"We are calling on the premier to think very serious about the severity of the actions and the path that they're undertaking here".

According to Statistics Canada, in 2014, the Alberta government imported over $17.6 billion in goods from British Columbia; but according to recent comments by Premier Notley, only $70 million of interprovincial trade is in support of B.C. wineries.

A Canadian government source said Trudeau spoke with both premiers last week and made it clear he wants the pipeline built.

With a throne speech next week, he said he would not be distracted, and he hopes "cooler heads on the other side of the Rockies will prevail".

It's the latest move in the inter-provincial spat over the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline.

Anderson applauded Notley's handling of the dispute, which he says lines up with the views and frustrations of the Alberta oil and gas industry and of Albertans generally. "Particularly for smaller and newer wine producers who rely heavily on the Alberta market".

He said Notley's reaction was "over the top" when B.C. controversially asserted its right to restrict the flow of diluted bitumen through pipelines in protect its coastline and environment, and announced extensive consultations and studies about spill cleanup that could take a year.

Conservative leader Andrew Scheer is calling on Justin Trudeau to ditch the USA trip he embarked on Wednesday morning and come back home to settle the brewing trade war between B.C. and Alberta over the Trans Mountain pipeline.
