VIDEO: Quebec group supports BC wine industry with #PinotNotPipelines

A group in Quebec is showing its support of the B.C. wine industry after Alberta made a move that threatens to do some damage.

On Monday, Alberta’s Premier Rachel Notley announced a boycott of all imports of B.C. wines, in an attempt to send a message about how important the energy industry — specifically the Trans Mountain Pipeline — is to Alberta’s economy.

"The wine industry is important in B.C. Not nearly as important as the energy industry is to Alberta and Canada, but important nonetheless,” Notley said last week.

An environmental group called Équiterre has started a campaign for B.C. wines, standing in solidarity with the province’s stance on the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline project.

In a video released on their Facebook page, the group encourages people to buy B.C. wine to support our industry (while drinking in moderation).

They are telling people to pass on the word by taking a picture using the hashtags #PinotNotPipelines, #ToastTheCoast, #QBLovesBCWine, #QBCaimeleVinBC, and #StopKM.

Since Notley’s announcement of the boycott, several politicians have called for a stop to the trade dispute, and other provinces like Saskatchewan have shown their support for the B.C. wine industry in response to Alberta’s ban.
