Whereupon Notley fired up a threat to (as she put it in an April 8 posting on social media) "to impose seriously economic consequences on British Columbia if its government continues on its present course".

"Pharmacare does not grow on trees", Notley said.

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.

Notley sent her deputy premier to the meeting in her place.

The federal Liberal government plans to spend $4.5 billion to buy the Trans Mountain pipeline and all of Kinder Morgan Canada's core assets.

The NDP government in B.C. came to power a year ago - supported by the Green Party - after an election campaign in which it committed to working against the pipeline expansion owing to environmental concerns.

Reacting to the lawsuit, Notley said she wasn't surprised and that B.C.is trying to stoke uncertainty in negotiations.

It was James with four reserves, and they outscored Boston, 26-12. "I haven't always been successful, obviously". And so too was LeBron James , when he suffered an apparent leg injury after Larry Nance Jr . fell on top of him.

During a press conference on May 16, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley used her strongest language yet in reiterating her promise to cut off all oil and gas flow into British Columbia if the province did not stop its opposition to the Kinder Morgan pipeline project.

"I understand Premier Notley's frustration, I share her frustrations", Moe said.

Earlier in the week, Horgan said he didn't expect any drama at the meetings over Trans Mountain.

She and other Alberta ministers made similar statements when Bill 12 was introduced, debated and passed, leaving no doubt that "its objective was to authorize the government of Alberta to reduce supplies of crude oil, natural gas and refined fuels to cause economic harm to British Columbians in order to punish and put pressure on B.C". "That's why we're fighting for the pipeline".

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe said last week that he wants to speak about the pipeline's benefits when he's at the conference.

In filing the claim, Eby said it came about after "we repeatedly called on Alberta not to move forward with blatantly unconstitutional legislation".

In a statement, the communications department for the Trans Mountain project said it would not comment on consultations around the project until they are terminated or reached a "sufficiently definitive agreement on or before May 31 that satisfies the objectives that we discussed and or as may otherwise be required by applicable laws or stock exchange rules".
