Analyst predicts Kinder Morgan will walk away from expansion as deadline looms

The British Columbia government is going to court asking for an injunction and damages against Alberta over that province's recently passed fuel restriction law.

Meanwhile, Alberta's NDP government is arguing that B.C.'s attempts to halt the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion are unconstitutional, since pipelines between provinces are under federal jurisdiction.

With just over a week to go until Kinder Morgan's deadline for abandoning the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, no other companies have publicly come forward to say they'd be interested in taking over the project.

Kinder Morgan has ceased all non-essential spending on the $7.4-billion pipeline project that would twin the existing pipeline between Burnaby, B.C., and Edmonton.

Alberto: Heavy rains expected for Central Florida
The center said a tropical storm warning is in effect from the Suwannee River in Florida to the Mississippi-Alabama state line. On Sunday , the chance of rain includes the entire day, but storms will again be more likely in the afternoon in evening.

"The deal has to get done with Kinder if the focus is to get the pipeline in service by 2020", McConaghy says, noting the cost and delays involved in bringing in a third party.

Notley noted that B.C. would be able to source oil and gas from Washington, but it would drive up prices for consumers. "Nonetheless, what I would suggest is it's probably premature, although we appreciate them sharing their arguments with us in advance".

"I understand Premier Notley's frustration, I share her frustrations", Moe said. Alberta has 20 days to file a statement of defence.

"It's very interesting on one hand; they don't want our oil, and they're suing us to give them our oil", Notley said.

Four reasons why the team will win Game 7
That's how they looked in the second half of Game 1, over the final 45 minutes of Game 3 and over the final 36 minutes of Game 6. Saturday night's game takes place on the Warriors' home court, where they have only lost once in their last 17 playoff games.

But there's ample indication of the New Democrats having darker designs on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

"A significant disruption in the supply of gasoline, diesel, and crude oil from Alberta to British Columbia would cause British Columbia irreparable harm", the document asserts.

"We have granted permits at the same pace and with the same process as the previous [B.C.] government", he said Tuesday.

Not only is the growing resistance from the local community, indigenous rights groups and local and US-based environmental groups to the pipeline, but even the financial community thinks the economics and changing energy market is stacked against it.

Trump can't block users from his Twitter feed, federal judge rules
The Knight Institute hopes that the ruling against Trump will set a precedent for other public officials across the country. Noah Feldman, a Harvard law professor, said he thinks the case was wrongly decided and expects it to be reversed.

The news comes as the project has been pegged back by numerous regulatory delays that could see construction stretch beyond the latter half of 2020, costing Kinder Morgan vast sums of money that has resulted in the firm threatening to abandon the project.
