In the latest back-and-forth development between BC and Alberta over the Kinder Morgan Pipeline expansion, Alberta is being sued by the BC government after legislation was passed in Alberta last week that would give the province the ability to shut off its oil supply to BC.
Plans to triple the capacity of Kinder Morgan's existing Trans Mountain pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby have pitted Alberta and the federal government against B.C., which says the risk of a bitumen spill is too great for the province's environment and economy.
With nine days to go in the deadline for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion to begin, Premier Scott Moe is calling on the federal government to ramp up its efforts to ensure the project moves ahead.
The company responsible for the project, Kinder Morgan, set a self-imposed deadline to mothball the project if political interferences are not dealt with by the end of May.

Information still is preliminary, however, and authorities say they are still checking flooded buildings and streets. Officials are urging anyone in the area to seek higher ground and not to drive through flooded roads.
Eby said the Alberta and the federal government are causing delays by refusing to accept B.C.'s invitations to join legal cases, or take legal arguments straight to the Supreme Court of Canada where the outcomes are final.
Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is skipping the annual gathering of Western premiers, saying she will not engage on any other issue while British Columbia is opposing the Trans Mountain pipeline project. "Pretty soon Kinder Morgan, I think, is going to get whiplash and just say 'to heck with this... we're in the oil business, not the politics business'".
If Alberta does restrict oil transports to B.C. gas pumps, he said, the province is prepared to ask a judge to make an order against it through an injunction.
Horgan wasn't commenting Monday on Notley's decision to skip the conference. "They want to bring that oil through here, but we say that we will stop Kinder Morgan", George-Parker said.

"We continue to engage in financial discussions on the way we are going to do that", Trudeau said.
Next day, Alberta energy minister Margaret McCuaig-Boyd expanded on the threat on the floor of the Alberta legislature.
"There has been a mischaracterization of B.C.'s role here".
"A significant percentage of the gasoline and diesel consumed in British Columbia is imported from Alberta refineries, either by pipeline, train or tanker truck", the B.C. statement of claim concedes.
