Saskatchewan wants Ottawa to get tough with BC over Trans Mountain pipeline

Taxpayers shouldn't have to pay for Prime Minister Trudeau's failure, say Conservatives

Horgan fails to realize that the B.C. government employees' pension fund invests heavily in the oil-and-gas industry, both in Canada and the USA, because of the excellent return on the investment dollars.

"Mr. Morneau and Mr. Trudeau know we're acting legally, correctly within our constitutional jurisdiction", Heyman said, noting B.C. continues to issue work permits for the project in a fair and responsible way. British Columbia's new government has launched legal challenges. Canada has the world's third largest oil reserves but 99 percent of its exports now go to refiners in the US, where limits on pipeline and refinery capacity mean Canadian oil sells at a discount.

"If Kinder Morgan is not interested in building the project - we think plenty of investors would be interested in taking on this project, especially knowing that the federal government believes it is in the best interest of Canadians and is willing to indemnity to make sure it gets built".

"This is about standing up for Alberta against a federal government that has inflicted massive economic damage on our province", he said.

"We see a path to an outcome that will assure that we can get the advantage that we're seeking; that's why those discussions are ongoing".

Meanwhile Eby has written to Kathleen Ganley, Alberta's minister of justice and solicitor general, encouraging her to refer the Preserving Canada's Prosperity Act to the Alberta courts to assess its constitutionality. During debate Tuesday, he responded to shouts from the NDP benches, by saying "When they go low, we'll go high".

China planning to buy up to $200 billion worth of USA goods
Earlier this year, the USA announced it would impose import taxes on aluminium - including but not exclusively those from China. The United States' two biggest exports to China were aircraft at $16 billion past year , and soybeans, at $12 billion.

OnePlus 6 passes scratch, burn, and bend testing
Scratches on the OnePlus smartphone surface at the sixth level of the scale, while some deeper signs appear at the seventh level. The OnePlus 6's AMOLED panel survives about 20 seconds of the flame before being permanently marred, which isn't unexpected.

She says if the impasse is not resolved soon, she is, in her words, "ready and prepared to turn off the taps".

BC Liberal leader Andrew Wilkinson said the public will end up paying for the pipeline because of the "ineptitude" of the B.C. government's actions.

Asked how Morneau's statement might impact the future of the pipeline, Horgan replied: "I'm not a seer". His offer of covering losses caused by B.C.'s delaying of the project stands for other investors as well, he said.

Alberta has passed landmark legislation giving it sweeping power to intervene in oil and gas exports that could result in punitive price spikes in British Columbia in the dispute over the Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion.

"The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples clearly articulates the need to secure the free, prior and informed consent of Indigenous Peoples on any project that directly impacts them", it quoted vice-president Bob Chamberlin saying.

He declined to say what sort of financial help or how much financial aid Ottawa could provide to Kinder Morgan.
