  • Trudeau vows financial backing, legislation to save Trans Mountain pipeline

But the three were still unable to agree on the method of moving diluted bitumen from Alberta to the port of Vancouver.

However, B.C. won't drop its federal court challenge of the pipeline expansion, with Horgan telling reporters that a court challenge was the logical way to deal with jurisdictional conflicts.

Notley said legislation to allow Alberta to cut oil supplies to B.C., sure to send gas prices there soaring, would be introduced in the legislature this week.

Kinder Morgan Canada, part of Kinder Morgan Inc, is threatening to abandon the project unless it receives sufficient clarity about the path ahead by May 31.

Kenney said in recent days the federal government has said everything's on the table to ensure construction, yet we aren't getting closer to getting this critical project built.

Trudeau cited investor confidence as one reason to help Kinder Morgan Canada, part of Kinder Morgan Inc, which plans to nearly triple the capacity of its Trans Mountain line from Alberta to the Pacific province of British Columbia.

"This specific meeting was very much about bringing together two premiers who have very clear differences in approaches and, particularly, impressing upon British Columbia that the federal government will be exerting its constitutional authority to move forward on projects in the national interest that cross provincial boundaries", he said. "We only find ourselves here [on Sunday] because of his demonstrable hostility to Canada's energy industry his cancellation of the Northern Gateway pipeline, his killing of the Energy East pipeline by changing the regulatory rules mid-stream, his surrender to Barack Obama's Veto of Keystone XL and his two years of inaction on the Trans Mountain Pipeline".

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday moved to end an escalating crisis over a Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd oil pipeline, saying Ottawa was prepared to offer financial aid to ensure the project went ahead. "That's not how we must do business in Canada".

The move has been the subject of a heated trade battle between B.C. and Alberta since January and has seen almost 200 people arrested for demonstrating at Kinder Morgan work sites in Burnaby.

Trudeau said the pipeline was approved by his government in 2016 after a rejigged environmental assessment and Indigenous consultation process, and only in concert with the Liberals' climate change and oceans protection plan.

Speaking before the meeting, a federal government source said past examples of help included a bailout of the auto industry in 2009, federal loan guarantees for a hydro-electric project and Ottawa's investment in an offshore energy project.

Notley, meanwhile, said she felt "a lot better" following the meeting - and that once Morneau's talks with Kinder Morgan were complete, the project would proceed.

Notley simply stated that the pipeline "will be built".

Before Sunday's duelling news conferences were even complete, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer was front and centre, accusing Trudeau of sitting on his hands for too long and frittering away investor confidence in Canada as a whole.

"His damaging policies. have only led to more uncertainty and instability in Canada's resource sector", Scheer said.

Notley called B.C.'s actions a "considered attempt to create uncertainty" and said Alberta won't engage in "esoteric debates" meant to "to harass a project to death".

One thing that didn't happen, she said, was a promise or threat by Trudeau to withhold federal transfer payments to B.C.
