BC Sues Alberta Over 'Turn-Off-Fuel-Tap' Legislation

Notley said the lawsuit is just one of several tactics to create uncertainty over the Kinder Morgan pipeline project. "They are still reserving the right to play legal rope-a-dope until the cows come home".
Moreover the wording of the Act insisted that the motivation was (as the title had it) "preserving Canada's economic prosperity" and (as the preamble had it) "maximizing value of Alberta's natural energy resources". The B.C. Supreme Court has yet to rule in a case testing the province's jurisdiction.
The Government of British Columbia filed Tuesday the statement of claim-after it had threatened to do so last week-in Alberta's Court of Queen's Bench, arguing that the "Preserving Canada's Economic Prosperity Act" recently passed by Alberta violates the Canadian Constitution in the part that prohibits any law that is a tariff or whose goal and essence make it "tariff-like".
Plans to triple the capacity of Kinder Morgan's existing Trans Mountain pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby have pitted Alberta and the federal government against B.C., which says the risk of a bitumen spill is too great for the province's environment and economy.

On Tuesday, she complained that B.C.is seeking the power to limit oil exports while insisting Alberta must sell B.C. its fossil fuels on demand.
"Pharmacare does not grow on trees", she said. "In order to protect and improve the things that matter to people, like pharmacare, we need a strong, functioning national economy".
Notley said she could not comment on the status of negotiations with Kinder Morgan, other than saying they are getting closer to finding a way to move forward without delay by the pipeline company's deadline.
At a closing news conference, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe agreed that free-trade issues were his priority at the Western Premiers' Conference. There is already ample enough evidence present from the NDP's own election platform for the federal government to file a legal claim against B.C., seeking damages for violating Ottawa's legal right to approve projects in the national interest. "In addition to economic harm, a sudden disruption in supply could injure human health and safety in remote communities".

Cavs, Game 7? "We'll just have to play it by ear". "They will eventually test it and see if there's any possibility whatsoever". In Game 6, they were not hitting those shots, and defensively they let Hill and other supporting Cavaliers get rolling.
Not only did he play all 48 minutes, but he dropped 35 points on 12-of-24 shooting and added 15 rebounds and nine assists. It's something you wish you had when you're done playing, but more than that, it's just basketball for me.
Some are already asking questions about whether enough was done after the last flood to prevent a similar catastrophe. In one instance, a wedding party was forced to flee the Main Street Ballroom when the waters burst through the doors.
They have yet to reach the 300 mark in this series, posting an average of 269.8 for the series, according to NBA .com/stats. The Warriors might be the favorites - after all, it'll be four All-Stars against one on Monday - but Game 7 is no gimme.
