The standoff over Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion continues despite a summit between the Premiers of BC and Alberta, and the Prime Minister in Ottawa over the weekend.
 
Exiting yesterday's meeting, BC Premier John Horgan told reporters the talk was frank, but despite no threats being made, the stalemate continues.
 
"We continue to disagree on the question of moving diluted bitumen from Alberta to the port of Vancouver. We had a discussion about options, the federal government their plans over the next number of days."
 
Horgan says the federal government is expected to implement financial measures against BC, but there is no word yet on what those are.
 
Last week, Kinder Morgan suspended work on the $7.4-billion expansion until at least the end of May.
