Notley welcomes trade delegation from B.C. amid pipeline dispute – Global News

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley met with a delegation from the Greater Vancouver Board of Trade in Edmonton on Thursday.

In the midst of an ongoing feud over the proposed Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, 100 business, Indigenous, community and labour leaders from British Columbia made the trip to Edmonton to show that B.C. is still “open for business.”

Dubbed “The Federation Flight,” the delegation met with the premier Thursday morning before planning to attend a luncheon presentation hosted by the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce.

Notley is speaking at the luncheon and will answer questions from reporters following her address at around 12:25 p.m. MT.

The premier will be joined at the event by Deron Bilous, the minister of economic development and trade; Margaret McCuaig-Boyd, the minister of energy; Joe Ceci, the minister of finance; and Iain Black, the president of the Vancouver Board of Trade.
