BC wine ban not good for business

Alberta boycotts BC wine in pipeline dispute

"B.C. wines are probably our number one selling wine category that we have".

"It only made sense for me to do this around Calgary and other parts of Alberta". "I think there's a role there for them", he said.

Horgan, speaking at a news conference in Victoria, said that he has spoken with Notley and Justin Trudeau and expressed that he is keeping his province's best interests at heart.

"And it is not just that the Alberta government has to step back on the boycott on the B.C. wine because proportionately that is an insignificant boycott, to be brutally honest, when you look at getting the oil to market".

"I hope that you will consider the severity and outcome of the actions your minister has proposed and that you will accept my offer to meet with you to discuss these and any other matters relating to the operations of our company in B.C".

The comments come amid a growing trade battle between Alberta and British Columbia over the project, which would almost triple crude shipments on the line to 890,000 barrels per day. Kinder Morgan, the company behind the project, is said to be preparing their legal team for a fight.

"In the short term, I'm pretty sure we can find a happy customer to enjoy the wine".

Municipalities along the northern Alberta-B.C. border are calling on Ottawa to end an escalating trade dispute between the two provinces, as both governments wrangle for the upper hand.

"It's a good thing B.C. people love B.C. wine". It is unclear how much of that was already purchased by merchants around the province. Fodor, who is originally from B.C., now lives in Alberta and dreamt for years of opening his own winery.

"It's mostly symbolic, but I'm certain that B.C. producers aren't liking seeing this and hearing this".

Baio believes Eggert meeting with cops is his ticket to vindication due to her changing the facts around her story multiple times. Oz Show , where she further detailed her claims. "I didn't want anybody to look at me and think I was weak".

Morgan says he will have no problem making the ban permanent, if it comes to that.

The B.C. side is expected to lay out the Horgan government's rationale for its proposed move against Alberta oil.

The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission is a little different from the rest of the provinces, Hynes-Dawson said in a brief interview Wednesday.

A Global News report says the AGLC has about 30 to 35 days worth of B.C. wine in their warehouse.

"I was a supporter of the pipeline coming from Western Canada to the east", he said. "I never dreamed it would go this far", she said.

"If they want to ban us, then we should be able to ban them back", said Froehler.

"The small independent wine makers, family-run businesses; this is their only livelihood". "I think Albertans should be embarrassed their premier is advocating for it".

"Next time you're thinking about ordering a glass of wine, think of our energy workers, think of your neighbours, think of our community, think about our province and maybe choose some terrific Alberta craft beer instead", she said. "Whatever it is they do, they are Albertans, so this is an action by the Alberta government that is actually going to hurt Alberta". "We're losing investment to Iran, and that's hard for Canada to hear".

"I will not be distracted from that objective while the government of Alberta chooses to take retaliatory trade actions against our province because we've chosen to talk to British Columbians about we can protect BC's interests".
