Alberta has already spent a total of $1.29 million on the ad campaign, and though the advertisements can be seen all across Canada, more than half that funding has gone into advertising in British Columbia - $700,000, to be exact. "And it is costing Canada billions every year - money that could be paying for things like roads, schools, and hospitals from coast to coast to coast". She will speak about the government's efforts to get a pipeline built to tidewater, said a chamber news release.

Notley has repeatedly said she would do whatever it takes to get the pipeline to tidewater built, including buying the project outright. Robertson's comments "show a tremendous inability to look beyond the most local of borders", Notley said.

The province announced Thursday that billboards are now on display across British Columbia as part of a nationwide campaign to highlight the economic, social and environmental benefits of the Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion. The Federal Court of Appeal previously rejected appeals from the city and from the provincial government in March. During the interview, the Vancouver mayor added that Alberta's oil and gas sector "represents such a tiny fraction of the overall economy and a job count" in Canada, whereas cities such as Vancouver and Toronto are driven by technology and innovation-related sectors. Notley says she plans on submitting an opinion piece to B.C. media to counter Robertson's remarks.

Kinder Morgan has set a May 31st deadline to indicate whether or not it will move ahead with the project, based on the assurance B.C. won't be able to thwart it through court challenges.

Notley has previously warned that B.C.'s delay tactics could bring consequences and her government is close to passing legislation that would give it the power to restrict oil shipments.

Parties on both sides of the house voted on Wednesday to accept an Alberta Party amendment to put a two-year limit on the bill.

"We must deploy this tool with a cool hand, not an angry one", Notley said.
