Alberta premier confident pipeline talks will succeed by May 31 deadline

United Conservative Party leader Jason Kenney in a Postmedia file

"We will continue to assess and re-assess the situation and (do) what is appropriate and necessary to get the project built, so I don't have a final number for you", said Cheryl Oates, the premier's director of communications, in an email. "We will do what it takes". The Federal Court of Appeal previously rejected appeals from the city and from the provincial government in March. "The economic consequences would be severe throughout the country".

The City of Burnaby intends to appeal the National Energy Board (NEB) decision to approve the Trans Mountain pipeline route through Burnaby to the Federal Court of Appeal within the next two weeks.

As for Alberta's upcoming legislation which would restrict oil and gas shipments to the West Coast, Bill 12, Notley expects her government to vote on it early next week.

Alberta has started a new campaign in B.C. that hopes to highlight the benefits and "counter the misinformation, harassment and obstruction" that the Trans Mountain Pipeline project has faced.

MLAs agreed to an amendment by Alberta Party MLA Karen McPherson to put a two-year limit on those powers. Taking the fight to Vancouver Notley is particularly upset by the comments Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson made in an interview with Bloomberg News in NY recently. "What's top of mind is doing my job for Albertans, standing up for the province, getting this pipeline built". "They obviously demonstrate a lack of knowledge about what generates wealth in Canada". Mr. Robertson "doesn't understand there are other cities than just his city - there are other people in the province of B.C., quite frankly, who are struggling to find employment".

Notley said Ottawa is in "very serious and determined" discussions with Kinder Morgan with a goal of resuming construction this summer and eliminating "a critical mass of uncertainty".

"We will marshal every constitutional and legal argument available to make sure BC does not succeed in playing chicken with the rest of the Canadian economy", says Notley.
