The debate over the Kinder Morgan project has erupted once again.

Last week’s announcement by the B.C. NDP government of plans to further review the oil spill risks of the Trans Mountain pipeline have – predictably – not gone over well with our provincial neighbour.

But this time, oil isn’t the only liquid at stake between B.C. and Alberta. In fact, the Alberta government announced on Tuesday that it will boycott all imports of B.C. wines.

Talks about Alberta buying B.C. electricity have also been suspended.

Horgan Responds

In a conference call on February 7, B.C. Premier John Horgan said he won’t be retaliating.

“I’ve spoken with the prime minister and the premier of Alberta. I’ve made it clear to both of them that the interests of British Columbians are my priority, nor will I be distracted by the events happening in other jurisdictions,” Horgan said.

But Notley’s attempts to get under the skin of BC’s premier don’t appear to be ending anytime soon. On Wednesday, she spent over an hour tweeting messages of support she’d received from British Columbians. The majority came from Vancouver Island.

Do these tweets from a select few Vancouver Islanders represent what you feel? Let us know in the comment section.
