Alberta and B.C. will let the courts decide the fate of the Trans-Mountain pipeline.

B.C. Premier John Horgon announced Thursday, February 22, he'll curtail his opposition to the expansion of the Trans-Mountain pipeline and let it go through the courts instead.

He says a judge can decide if B.C. has the right to restrict the flow of oil that would increase if the pipeline extension goes ahead.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley in turn, lifted the ban on B.C. wine.

"I think it is fair to say that today, in a small way, B.C. blinked. And we are happy on behalf of all those working families across Canada who need to see the billions of dollars that the successful completion of the project will bring to the economy."

Notley says she's confident the court will find in Alberta's favour.
