BC to seek reference case in courts over pipeline dispute

Notley lifts retaliatory measures against BC including wine ban
"I think it is fair to say that in a small way today B.C. blinked", Notley said.
That's a similar line to the one being used by the B.C. Wine Institute.
Premier John Horgan said Thursday that his government is filing a constitutional reference case on the issue, which has been at the centre of a heated debate between the two provinces.
Horgan said he wants B.C. and Alberta to be good neighbours, but the rest of Canada needs to know how strongly British Columbia feels about protecting its coastline.
Notley and Bilous have said the Trans Mountain expansion is critical because Alberta's crude oil sells at a sharp discount on the North American market due to pipeline bottlenecks and to a lack of access to a better price on overseas markets.
However, B.C. demands are backed up by American and Canadian scientists who have warned that there are significant gaps and uncertainties in the science related to how to clean up a bitumen spill in water.
Horgan's government has been fighting the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline - which got the green light from the federal government in late 2016 - and Notley's government views the move as a back door way to kill the project by strangling its financial viability.
The B.C. wine boycott is over and corks are popping all over the Calgary foodie community to celebrate.
Shortly before the boycott was lifted, Premier Horgan released this video where he announced his B.C. government will be using the courts to moving forward with consultation around four bitumen spill safeguards.
"Multiple courts, including the Supreme Court of Canada, have affirmed the federal government's jurisdiction over interprovincial pipelines and we will continue to vigorously protect that jurisdiction".
Asked if the reference to the courts should be read as a sign B.C.is backing down, Horgan said "not at all".
She has said the wine ban is not rescinded but suspended.
"This is not about politics, this is not about trade", Horgan said in a brief media availability at the legislature in Victoria. "And it's about B.C.'s right to defend itself against actions that may threaten our people, our province and our future". Alberta NDP Premier Rachel Notley and Liberal Prime Minister Justin Trudeau-quite the back-room couple aren't they?
"To investors, it makes us look like a risky bet".
Despite the federal government's multiple approvals of the expansion - once in 2017, and again in February under the new approval process, debate has taken a tense turn in the political arena in recent weeks, pitting the once cordial neighbouring provinces against each other.
"I'm confident that the courts will not give B.C. rights it does not possess under our Constitution", she said.
