Alberta passes bill ‘to turn off the taps’ to B.C. over pipeline delays

Alberta has passed legislation giving the province’s energy minister the power to choke off gasoline shipments to British Columbia if that province continues to throw up barriers to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

Bill 12 passed late Wednesday afternoon in the Alberta Legislature. David Swann, the Liberal for Calgary-Mountain View, was the only member of the legislature to vote against it.
