Sorry to be disappointed with your opinion on the Alberta response to B.C. barriers on Kinder Morgan Pipeline (Wine boycott a case of sour grapes, The NEWS, Feb. 13).
In this case, our Prime Minster, Justin Trudeau, has failed to exercise his leadership role in attending to the national interest and reiterating to Premier Horgan and the B.C. coalition government that the federal government is the body to approve the Transmountain pipeline, not B.C. This sounds like the last hare-brained NDP government, that said it was shutting down the military test range in the Salish Sea.
Between a provincial government trying to usurp the federal powers and a federal government leadership intent on vanity town hall meetings, do you really think Alberta should respect what B.C. and the feds have done or not done? It sounds like even Horgan is starting to realize that it was not respectable action on the part of the B.C. government and that it makes sense for the pipeline to proceed, as soon as possible.
I think you really missed the mark with your commentary.
