Premier Rachel Notley has formally apologized for Alberta's role in the '60s Scoop, and although survivors say that doesn't close the book on one of Canada's darkest episodes, they say it does open a new chapter of reconciliation and healing.
Alberta has passed landmark legislation giving it sweeping power to intervene in oil and gas exports that could result in punitive price spikes in British Columbia in the dispute over the Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion.
Once passed, Marg McCuaig-Boyd would be able to direct truckers, pipeline companies and rail operators on how much product could be shipped and when. Violators would face fines of up to $1 million a day for individuals and $10 million a day for corporations.
Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says British Columbia's opposition to the Trans Mountain pipeline threatens the rule of law in Canada and says she made it clear in a phone call to B.C. Premier John Horgan that her province is retaliating.
Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and Opposition Leader Jason Kenney exchanged smiles and brief waves in the Alberta legislature Monday before letting the accusations fly in their first question period together.
