B.C. not looking for a fight on pipeline: Horgan

--

VICTORIA - British Columbia Premier John Horgan doesn't intend to respond to any provocation from Alberta in the escalating trade dispute over the Trans Mountain pipeline.

Horgan said Wednesday it is not in anyone's interests to fuel the spat between the two provinces.

"I hope that we would see the end of the back-and-forth," he told a news conference in Victoria. "I deliberately wasn't available to you yesterday because I don't think it's in anyone's interests to have duelling premiers."

Trudeau said talks continue out of public sight with the provinces.

"We're making sure we come to the right place that's in the national interest for Canada," he said.
