BC already seeking new markets for wine in Asia, US: Horgan

Reaction to AGLC halting BC wine imports

Horgan said he promoted the industry during a recent trip to China, South Korea and Japan, and he plans to discuss increasing the province's market share south of the border on a trip to Washington state next month. It's the playground attitude of, "Well, I'm taking my toys and I'm going home".

On Wednesday, Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd. CEO Ian Anderson also called on the federal Liberals to move past words of support to actions of support.

"The wine industry is very important to B.C. Not almost as important as the energy industry is to Alberta and Canada, but important nonetheless", said Notley.

"This is one step to waking B.C. up to the fact that they can't attack our industry without a response from us", Notley said Tuesday.

Kenney described the plan as a way to ensure no such projects are built before accusing the Trudeau government of not doing enough to ensure the Kinder Morgan pipeline is built in the face of social and political opposition in B.C. "I have had discussions with the premier of Alberta and have made it clear to both of them that the interests of British Columbia are my responsibility", Horgan said. "We're getting a reputation around the world as a country that can't get things done", he said.

Premier Rachel Notley's annoyance with British Columbia's stance regarding the proposed Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is understandable.

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

Horgan added that he is keeping on contact with growers and even suggested there are other markets, including those overseas that are interested in B.C. products. "But that's not a sales strategy, so I'm hoping this turns around pretty quickly", he said.

"From our drillers and producers to those working in our restaurants and hotels, Albertans from all walks of life are counting on the federal government to get this right", she said.

He says non-military spending "will never come down" without electing more Republicans in the 2018 elections. He calls the spending plan a "BIG VICTORY for our Military , but much waste in order to get Dem votes".

Horgan maintains the proposal to limit diluted bitumen shipments is not meant to be provocative but is aimed at protecting B.C.'s environment and economy.

Morgan says he will have no problem making the ban permanent, if it comes to that.

He says that his bottom line will suffer as a result of Notley's ban.

She said in 2017, there were 17.2 million bottles imported - the equivalent of about 1.4 million cases - with an estimated value of $70 million per year for B.C. wineries. "We're going to continue to engage with the premiers on a regular basis".

"The small independent wine makers, family-run businesses; this is their only livelihood".

"Overall, I think the real thing that has to be done is to be good Canadians and to sit down and to talk and negotiate ... and to solve things - not just pull things out of a hat, not knowing what the full implications are".

The Opposition B.C. Liberals have branded the pipeline feud a trade war and called on Horgan to "stop playing games".

"In the coming days, the Government of Alberta will be monitoring the situation and preparing further action". "We're losing investment to Iran, and that's hard for Canada to hear".
