BC premier says he won't retaliate in ongoing trade fight with Alberta

"The announced escalation of retaliatory trade measures will leave businesses of all sizes, their owners and their employees caught in the crossfire", it said. What Alberta does is entirely up to them.

According to an earlier press release from BC Wine Institute, 30 per cent of all wine sold in Alberta is from B.C. and that "a working free-trade relationship between Alberta and British Columbia is imperative to securing economic well being in Canada".

Notley said she is prepared to risk being hit by fines under the New West Partnership trade agreement.

Horgan made the announcement at a news conference in Victoria Wednesday, the day after Alberta revealed its plan to block the sale of B.C. bottles.

"We stand with our wine industry, it is a quality project". "Lana Popham, the minister of agriculture, is reaching out to growers across the Okanagan".

Wall St drops after robust USA jobs report, weak earnings
Earlier in Germany, the benchmark 10-year bund hit two-year highs as yields firmed across the euro zone due to signs of inflation. The S&P 500 index showed 12 new 52-week highs and 16 new lows, while the Nasdaq recorded 20 new highs and 32 new lows.

"Punishing British Columbia wineries for something that they have nothing to do with is frankly amateurishly political", he said, adding he had no comment on the pipeline issue.

"We're continuing to discuss and engage with the B.C. government, with the Alberta government", he said. "We'll fight as hard as we can for our wineries".

The B.C. government is looking at restricting the expansion of bitumen through the province until it's satisfied a spill can be cleaned up, which was countered by the threat of a lawsuit from Alberta along with a ban on B.C. wine imports.

A sizable portion of B.C. beef production is sent to Alberta for finishing, which is the sort of thing that one might expect the province's agriculture minister to know. "My customers are still the same customers", she said. Horgan fears an escalating trade war could distract public and media attention from the rollout of his government's agenda for the year, starting next week in the legislature.

"We are disappointed that this political decision is threatening our progress and threatening the successes that have benefitted small businesses in both the Alberta and B.C. economies".

Students celebrate Black History Month
Just Goods Marketplace kicked off the Rockford Urban Ministries Black History Month sale today. As a result, her tweet in support of Black History Month was meaningless.

That's a message Notley herself is selling to Albertans. "I would like to thank her for standing up for Alberta". It hurts to know that our friends in B.C. will have to suffer while our two provinces battle it out.

The wine ban is the second trade retaliation that Notley has announced.

"We could see up to $100,000 lost in direct sales". But until then, B.C.'s campaign to stop Alberta from exporting our energy products is wrong.

Not a chance said Horgan. The expansion also faces court challenges.

Officials from his government will meet with their federal counterparts on Thursday to "clarify our intentions and clarify what we believe is our jurisdiction" on the pipeline issue, he told reporters.

Samsung is making chips for cryptocurrency mining
Whether Bitmain has now changed supplier and is contracting with Samsung , or whether it is another China based miner, is unclear. On Tuesday, Samsung reported 2017 chip sales of $69 billion, blowing past Intel's $63 billion from previous year .

The move is one of the province's responses to the B.C. government's proposed second phase of regulations for the transport of oil, seeking feedback on five points. The feds may indicate what Ottawa could do to back up Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's insistence that the project can, should and will be built.
