Wine war picks on small, family-owned operations: BC wine advocate

Scott Moe

"Obviously we're going to continue to make sure that we're standing up for the national interest", he said according to a Global News report.

On Tuesday, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley announced her province was banning wine imports from B.C., effective immediately.

The fight over Alberta oil spilled into the wine industry on Tuesday after Premier Rachel Notley implemented a ban on B.C. wine imports into the province.

In November 2016, the federal government approved the $7.4 billion project that would see a significant increase in capacity on the Trans Mountain Pipeline, which runs from Edmonton to Burnaby.

"While we have previously stated that Saskatchewan will support Alberta in defending against this attack on our energy industry, Saskatchewan has no plans to participate in retaliatory measures that would be in contravention of our trade commitment".

That could derail the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline.

"This uncertainty is decidedly unhelpful to economic development in Western Canada and for the general well-being of the Canadian federation", said Pallister's statement Wednesday.

The quarrel began last week when British Columbia's provincial government called for further studies of the risk of spills if the Kinder Morgan pipeline is expanded from Alberta to Vancouver's coastline.

The war of words between Alberta and B.C. surrounding the Trans Mountain Pipeline is becoming more serious. So, it would appear that this recent move by the Alberta government proves to be more of a publicity stunt than a prudent financial move, with many pointing out that those who stand to suffer most are the B.C. wineries and the Alberta businesses and consumers who support this sector of the B.C. economy.

Notley said in 2017, 17.2 million bottles, or more than 1.4 million cases of wine were imported into Alberta from B.C., about $70 million of that went to B.C. wineries.
