The highly anticipated meeting between the Canadian premieres and the prime minister was supposed to bring a deep tension to the surface, but ended up with a small hint of increased emotions.
Following reports that some prime ministers will either step out of a meeting in Montreal or not attend, John Britanski in British Columbia said the meeting ended with more similarities than anyone could expect at the beginning.
Horgan had some tense moments this year with Albert Premiere Rachel Notley and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau but said CBC Radio The House was pleased with the meeting.
In spite of the pleasant final, Horgan added that there are "no violets shrinking in this room."
Even the topics that were not originally planned for a long discussion were raised, such as Albert's oil crisis.
"Just because it's not in the program does not mean you will not talk about it," Horgan said.
The prime minister has just released his climate change plan in the province, which sets ambitious targets for clean energy, energy efficiency improvements and moving towards electric vehicles.
Horgan said that Canada has a huge amount of energy in Canada that has not yet been used, as there are still so many barriers in the province to move goods to the province.
Oil waves dominate meeting for Alberta Rachel Notley
If he does not have a firm answer to the requested assistance from the federal government, Alberta Premier will not stop Rachel Notley from demanding a solution to the province's oil crisis.
It is far from its ideal outcome. During a meeting with Trudeau and some of his ministers in Montreal, however, she said she felt the door opened – making her safe to continue the fight.
"We will continue the work we have done," she said House upon arrival with an empty hand on an agreement with Ottawa.
"We made a very clear query."
After months of uncertainty caused by an inability to efficiently export petroleum from the province, the Notley question has evolved into three specific requirements. They include relief for workers in petroleum plasters and help to get rail vehicles to move oil.
The obsolete extension of the Trans Mountain pipeline, which would require more oil from Alberta to tidewater off the coast of British Columbia, means that the raw material is mainly transported by rail.
Notley asked federal help to get rail cars to get more oil on the market, as the output currently exceeds shipping capacity.
The Trudeau liberals have not given her a specific answer to the way forward, but she remains optimistic, though she sometimes requires her to get her "elbows up".
It is so bad that this week announced a temporary reduction in oil production of 8.7 percent to increase prices – equivalent to 325,000 barrels per day.
The ending ends in late 2019, when Enbridge's line 3 pipeline is scheduled to start.
The government estimates that Alberta is losing $ 80 million a day for this discount, but Notley says the alternative is losing billions a year because Alberta oil is sold for a penny for a dollar for international oil.
Even if the federal government does not address this issue urgently, its other provincial and territorial partners seem to have – as almost "complete consensus" around the table – that something has to be done to resolve this problem.
"Constructive" interviews on heavy topics at the premiere meeting: LeBlanc
Minister Dominic LeBlanc had a hard work this week at the first ministerial meeting.
He is the man who is in charge of maintaining relations with every country of premiere.
In recent years, there has been sufficient provincial and territorial annoyance to bother almost all leaders – all from pipelines to carbon tax.
Many of these questions were done on Friday in Montreal and, despite some critics of the LeBlanc prime ministers, called the assembly "constructive".
All prime ministers signed a communiqué on Friday afternoon and promised to address issues such as clean energy, economic growth, and trade barriers between provinces.
Ministers said they left the action points and the real meaning of what could be achieved together.
Oil was not officially on the agenda, but LeBlanc said he had a "very thorough and complete broadcast" from prime ministers worried about the deteriorating situation in Alberta, which led to Prime Minister Notley temporarily cutting off oil production.
