O boicote de Alberta ao vinho BC prejudicará os consumidores

TORONTO, ON – The debate over the Trans Mountain pipeline came to a head on Tuesday, as Albertan Premier Rachel Notley anunciado the province will boycott wine from British Columbia as a result of the province’s delay of the pipeline.

David Clement, the Toronto-based North American Affairs Manager for the Consumer Choice Center (CCC) said approval of the pipeline would overwhelmingly bring support to Alberta’s workers and consumers, but a boycott of wine and a potential trade war will only serve to hurt people in both provinces.

“Sparking a trade war within Canada will only hurt consumers and producers in both provinces, and come at a significant cost for Canadians who don’t want their favourite drinks to be used as pawns in political debates.

“That being said, plans for the pipeline have proven to be safe and responsible, and B.C. should no longer delay the project that so many Canadians are counting on,” said Clement.

“This entire affair highlights the dire need for interprovincial free trade in Canada, so that ordinary Canadian producers and consumers don’t become political pawns in disputes that have nothing to do with them,” said Clement.
