Clark echoes Notley

An “unconstitutional” attempt to kill the Trans Mountain pipeline project.

Former B.C. Premier Christy Clark is again calling out her successor, John Horgan.

“I think he’s breaking the law,” Clark said. “I think he is doing something unconstitutional. Alberta and British Columbia have been the best of friends in Canada for a long, long time and I don’t think you attack your friends.”

Just two days ago Clark told a gathering of conservatives in Ottawa that efforts to block the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion are illegal and will hurt all of Canada.

Sunday, in an interview with CTV’s Question Period, Clark again took shots at Horgan while echoing Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is saying that B.C. is illegally trying to stop Kinder Morgan’s $7.4-billion project, which has already earned federal approval.

“There are rules. It’s been approved, it’s been properly approved,” she said. “What he’s doing is trying to set up a system where it cannot get to ‘yes’ and deliberately frustrating it so the project will get cancelled. He doesn’t have the constitutional right to do that.”

Last week, B.C. said it planned to review limits on diluted bitumen shipments over concerns about a possible oil spill – a risk the province fears would spell disaster for its environment and economy.

In response, Alberta stopped talks on plans to buy electricity from B.C. Notley later announced a province-wide ban on B.C. wine imports, effective immediately.
