Reaction to AGLC halting BC wine imports

When it comes to B.C. wines already on Alberta restaurant wine lists and wine store shelves, Premier Notley told Albertans to think about workers in her province's oil industry before they order.

Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister says increasing regional tensions and economic uncertainty over the future of the Trans Mountain pipeline project should be defused as quickly as possible.

Notley conceded on Tuesday that the ban on B.C. wine may violate interprovincial free-trade rules, but said Alberta is moving ahead anyway.

Because the announcement was only hours old, McWatters did not yet know how the wine industry would counteract the ban, but fight they will, given how important Alberta sales are.

"This is one good step to waking B.C. up to the fact that they can't attack our industry without a response from us, " Notley said Tuesday.

He says Tinhorn Creek will focus on selling more wine to the B.C. market in the short-term, but hopes the so-called wine war is short-lived because it would be hard to make up the Alberta sales elsewhere. "Not almost as important as energy industry is to Alberta and Canada, but important nonetheless".

Last week, Notley said Alberta was suspending further talks on power purchase agreements with B.C. worth up to $500 million annual to that province's coffers. Think of your neighbours. "Think about our province, and maybe choose some terrific Alberta craft beer instead".

Of course that will be tough. "We take the competition very seriously, and tomorrow we are very focused and convinced that we are ready to win and compete".

Notley says B.C.'s efforts to stall the expansion of the pipeline are an unconstitutional attempt to avoid federal approval of the project.

Protesters denounce the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain expansion project during a visit from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Burnaby, B.C. on June 16, 2016.

A spokesperson for the B.C. Wine Institute said the organization was shocked by the move.

"We are disappointed that this political decision is threatening our progress and threatening the successes that have benefited small businesses in both the Alberta and BC economies", states institute President/CEO Miles Prodan in a news release.

"We do not believe this matter will be resolved by trade measures that will primarily impact consumers and private businesses".

Moe wrote the B.C. government "has no legal jurisdiction or justification to delay or impede the construction of the Trans Mountain Pipeline".
