There's been a mixed reaction from several of the ALSA's 600 members since Premier Rachel Notley announced a ban on new imports of B.C. wine Tuesday, Martinez said.

Kenney argued that if British Columbia wants to put obstacles in front of new energy projects initiated by Alberta, then it basically doesn't deserve the revenues it generates from existing energy projects, including the Trans Mountain pipeline. Alberta has already responded by ditching talks about importing B.C. electricity and cutting off B.C. wine imports.

Stores and restaurants can still sell the bottles they already have, but no new B.C. wines will be brought into Alberta until the ban is lifted, said AGLC spokesperson Michelle Hynes-Dawson. "We're going to focus on the issues that matters to British Columbians and hope that cooler heads on the other side of the Rockies prevail".

OTTAWA - Just because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is refusing to wade publicly into the emerging pipeline-induced trade war between British Columbia and Alberta, that doesn't mean things aren't happening out of the public eye, his environment minister suggested Wednesday.

He added that he had no intention of retaliatory action against Alberta and dispelled the rumours about a possible ban on beef.

"If B.C. wanted to get really bloody-minded about it, it could play constitutional whack-a-mole", Blue said.

He says he'll continue standing up for the province's wine industry, including on a trip to Washington state next month where he'll talk about increasing the market south of the border.

But the B.C. Wine Institute said that sales figure represents the wholesale cost. "These are small craft outfits and every sale helps and makes a difference to them".

Horgan said Wednesday it is not in anyone's interests to fuel the spat between the two provinces.

Anderson said it's obvious the motivation of the B.C. government's plan is "to satisfy the political promises that the premier has made with the Green Party". "We don't take this lightly".

"The damage is done instantly, no matter what", he says.

Premier John Horgan has rejected the idea of retaliating against Alberta over its boycott of B.C. wines even as he pledged to stand up for vineyards on Vancouver Island and across the province. However, Ross says he thinks the hospitality industry could be hit the hardest by the ban.

"The small independent wine makers, family-run businesses; this is their only livelihood". "I think it's rank stupidity and again reflects the problems with inter-provincial trade".

While Horgan faces the byelection in Kelowna West Feb. 14-the day Alberta has set to start its importation ban of B.C. wines-Notley is also gearing up for a provincial election in May 2019.

Not only can B.C. not legally control the line, from a physical perspective, it's not clear how it thinks it can have any control or input as to what goes into the line at the Alberta point of origin.
