Alberta ends BC wine boycott

The wine institute notes the ban, which has been in place since February 6, is "severely harming" B.C. wineries and grape growers, many of which are small, family-owned operations.

"Majority sympathy all but disappears across the country on the decision; six-in-10 in Quebec (59%) say the BC NDP is right to take this action, but a majority in all other regions disagree".

Prodan said a survey of some members showed at least $1 million in lost revenue in the fan's first week and another $4 million in losses are projected by month's end.

Hogan denied that the province is backing down in the dispute, saying the intention is to have cooler heads prevail.He said he wants B.C. and Alberta to be good neighbours, but the rest of Canada needs to know how strongly British Columbia feels about protecting its coastline.

"I figured there would be some sort of feedback, some sort of challenge", said Jason Ocenas, manager at Township 7, which has wineries in Langley and Penticton.

The two-week trade squabble between BC and Alberta appears to be over.

"The ban has had an immediate, material effect", he said.

"As an industry we're going to have some work to do", she said.

The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission has been notified that they may resume purchasing bottles produced at B.C. wineries.

That gesture was sufficient for Alberta to stay its wine embargo.

While some wineries in the Okanagan say they hadn't felt a big drop in sales, the ban did have an effect.

Horgan said his government will continue moving ahead with public consultation on four of its proposed measures. "You don't just shift gears that easily".

The B.C. -Alberta trade dispute after B.C. Premier John Horgan presented environmental strategies that acted as push-back against the Sherwood Park-based Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

Opinions are split almost right down the middle when it comes to the federally-approved Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

Alberta accused Horgan of illegally trying to kill the pipeline expansion.

Notley and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau have made it clear that only Ottawa, not the provinces, has the authority to decide what goes in trans-boundary pipelines.

Federal officials have been meeting with their B.C. counterparts to find a solution to the impasse.

BC said then it wanted a further review of the risks associated with a pipeline expansion that would carry that diluted bitumen from the Alberta Tarsands to Burnaby and from there to tankers creeping down Burrard Inlet through Vancouver Harbour and along the southern tip of Vancouver Island to the Pacific.

She expected the Courts would rule against BC on the constitutional question.
