Notley says Alberta to stop importing B.C. wine in pipeline feud

EDMONTON, A.B. – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says the province will stop importing wine from British Columbia.

It’s the latest move in a growing dispute over the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion that would carry more Alberta oilsands bitumen to the B.C. coast.

B.C. has said it will restrict increased shipments of bitumen while it further studies the effectiveness of spill response and cleanup.

Notley says Alberta currently imports about 17 million bottles of wine worth $70 million annually from B.C. wineries.

“I’m also encouraging all Albertans 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 of our province, and maybe choose some terrific Alberta craft beer instead.”

She also says the Alberta Liquor and Gaming Commission will step up enforcement of sales from B.C. directly to consumers in her province.

Last week, Notley said Alberta was ending any further talks on power purchase agreements with B.C.
