Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is encouraging people to sign a petition telling B.C. Premier John Horgan and his government to stop trying to block the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.
The link to the petition is on a new Alberta government website launched Tuesday called “Keep Canada Working.”
The site also allows people to send form letters in support of the pipeline to their MPs, and talk about why the pipeline project is important to them on social media sites.
“This fight, it isn’t something any one government can do alone,” Notley said in a news release.
“We need all of us working together to make sure the B.C. government fully understands why this pipeline matters, why good jobs matter and why the rules of our country matter.”
The government plans to advertise the website in both Alberta and British Columbia.
This is Notley’s latest tactic in her fight against B.C.’s decision two weeks ago to further review of the oil-spill risk from the pipeline expansion.
Last week, Notley announced Alberta would no longer import wine from British Columbia for sale in the province’s retail outlets.
She said on Monday she would give talks between B.C. and federal officials a couple of days before taking further action.
