Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks to the Calgary Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday
In a statement on his official Facebook page, Moe says the BC government is hiding "under the guise of environmental protection" and are rejecting the notices of the Canadian National Energy Board Act and Canadian Environmental Protection Act regarding the legitimate safety of transporting goods through pipelines being approved following inspection and review.
John Horgan said Friday that his government's announcement earlier this week is cautionary and created to make sure B.C. doesn't suffer in the event of a catastrophic spill.
The Alberta and B.C. chambers of commerce as well as the Canadian Chamber of Commerce issued a joint statement Thursday saying the B.C. government is sending the wrong message to investors and diminishing Canada's competitiveness on the global market.
Trudeau's handling of the file shows he doesn't understand that regulation of interprovincial pipelines is exclusive federal jurisdiction and what the B.C. government has threatened to do is a direct attack on the Constitution, Kenney said.
"We know that getting our oil resources to new markets across the Pacific is absolutely essential.We need this pipeline and we're going to move forward with it responsibly like I committed to", Trudeau was reported to state. But in the meantime, and instead, the federal government can intervene. "That we could not allow that piece to stand".
"He needs to see this action for what it is, that is B.C. taking a shot across the federal bow, not Alberta", Notley said Friday.
And Notley has said this is just the first of many moves against British Columbia.
Trudeau didn't take any questions from the media following a tour of a seniors centre and a flood mitigation project in south Edmonton.
In his column, Les Leyne quotes Alberta Premier Rachel Notley saying: "We can not let this unconstitutional attack on jobs and working people stand".
Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi also weighed in. I'll also remind them that when you fill up your gas in the lower mainland, where do you think that gas comes from?
"I would strongly encourage the British Columbia government to actually read the (National Energy Board) ruling that talks in great detail about what they claim to be concerned about - about the risk of bitumen spills", Nenshi told CTV. "It came through the existing Trans Mountain pipeline".
In an emergency cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley said her government is studying a range of legal and economic responses to a regulation B.C.is proposing that would prohibit increased shipments of heavy crude through the province. "We are consulting with the people of B.C. It's way too premature to talk about those sorts of issues. We have already consulted".
