B.C. vs Alberta Round 3: No More Oil for You

BC to Alberta: We don't want the Trans Mountain pipeline expanded.

Alberta to BC: But our oil needs shipping and selling, and we need the revenues (and by the way you get transit fees, guys!)

BC to Alberta: We'll study how fast we can clean oil spills. Meanwhile, don't dare increasing flows or starting the TM expansion.

Alberta to BC: Fine then, keep your wine and your electricity.

BC to Alberta: Wait, what? Okay, fine, we're good on spill response. But we still don't want Trans Mountain expanded.

Alberta to BC: How about going totally oil-free, eh?

Actually, they're not talking about shutting all flows down as some media were quick to report, they only referred to legislation from 1980 when Alberta lowered oil and gas flows by 15%. Apparently that was enough to make the rest of Canada see their point. The saga continues.

I am a fan of civil disobedience in general. It is our right and perhaps duty. But this is silly. The only viable alternatives are a far riskier endeavor.

Exactly. Sometimes it's necessary but for this? The logic is completely wrong.
