Premier Rachel Notley unveils pro-Trans Mountain ads


As a looming deadline on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project draws near, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is giving more details on her multi-pronged approach to make sure the project goes ahead. The $7.4-billion project would almost triple the flow of diluted bitumen and other products between Edmonton and Burnaby.

Billboards splashed with phrases including "Trans Mountain pipeline means more money for roads, schools and hospitals" will be paired with television and radio spots nationally, with more than $700,000 of the campaign funds going to efforts in B.C., she said.

Along with the billboards, Notley will be writing an op-ed in BC media, in response to critical comments made by Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson.

Alberta also plans to participate in a court case where British Columbia is seeking to assert its jurisdiction over coastline protection measures that would interfere with the federally approved Trans Mountain expansion, she said.

Robertson's comments "show a tremendous inability to look beyond the most local of borders", Notley said.

Bains also noted a similar incident in Antigua after a family vacation last Christmas to the Caribbean island. Bains, a Sikh, refused to comply with TSA's request, which he said was a first in his many American flights.

Notley has repeatedly said she would do whatever it takes to get the pipeline to tidewater built, including buying the project outright. But she wants to see any uncertainty about the project eliminated, and construction back on track this summer.

On Tuesday, Mr. Robertson told Bloomberg that the proposed Trans Mountain pipeline expansion will never go ahead "based on the resistance on the ground". "They obviously demonstrate a tremendous lack of knowledge about what generates wealth within the economy of Canada".

Natural Resources Canada said in 2015 the country's oil and gas industry had a direct and indirect contribution to the nominal gross domestic product of 7.7 per cent.

The bill has the potential to cause gasoline and other fuel-related prices to spike in B.C. On Wednesday, Kinder Morgan shareholders voted in favour of a non-binding proposal that would require audits of the company's environmental and legal risks.

Phillips also announced an $88-million program funded by the provincial and federal governments to promote industrial efficiency. On Thursday, Ms. Notley confirmed that, like Saskatchewan, her province will seek status in the case.
