Oil pipeline plot thickens as British Columbia files Alberta suit over ‘tariff-like’ act Oil pipeline plot thickens as British Columbia files Alberta suit over ‘tariff-like’ act

British Columbia’s attorney general is taking his Alberta counterpart to task on the constitutionality of Alberta’s ‘Preserving Canada’s Economic Prosperity Act’, saying the hastily written act’s main purpose is to impose a cost burden on crude oil, natural gas and refined fuels crossing the Alberta/British Columbia border and to function in a role served by tariffs to punish another province, namely British Columbia.

Barrick and Newmont are there and we should be there,” he said in an interview in Toronto, adding he’d also like to acquire something in Peru. “Those are the two holes in our portfolio geopolitically I’d love to be able to fill in due course.”
