#PinotnotPipelines trending after Alberta bans BC wine over pipelines

Well, that didn’t take long.

After Alberta Premier Rachel Notley announced yesterday that the province will  immediately be halting any BC wine imports, people on both sides of the proverbial fence have been voicing their opinions.

Now, in the latest round of the war of words between Alberta and BC, people are voicing their unwavering support for BC wine with the hashtag #PinotnotPipelines.

Notley made the announcement following a dispute between BC and Alberta that began with the BC government announcing restrictions on bitumen transports – a move that would stall the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.

“The wine industry is important to BC,” Notley said in a tweet following the press conference. “Not nearly as important as [the] energy industry is to Alberta and Canada, but important nonetheless.”
