Notley says she can't divulge details of talks with Kinder Morgan, but says they are focused on the financial viability of the $7.4-billion project and on getting construction restarted this summer.

"We will not stand on the sidelines in the battle for the hearts and minds of Canadians", she told reporters.

The campaign started running April 30 and will continue until the pipeline is in operation, according to a government news release.

Notley has repeatedly said she would do whatever it takes to get the pipeline to tidewater built, including buying the project outright. The premier said more than half the budget - $700,000 - will be targeted at B.C.

The $7.4-billion project would almost triple the flow of diluted bitumen and other products between Edmonton and Burnaby. The Federal Court of Appeal previously rejected appeals from the city and from the provincial government in March. The company has threatened to pull out of the project by then if B.C., Alberta and Ottawa can not come to an agreement. It would have the potential to cause gasoline and other fuel-related prices to spike in B.C. Parties on both sides of the House accepted an Alberta Party amendment to put a two-year limit on the bill.

He was enormous in their semi-final win over Munster, making 20 tackles and constantly slowing down ball. Racing 92 - runners-up two seasons ago - are looking to claim their first title in the club's history.

The City of Burnaby intends to appeal the National Energy Board (NEB) decision to approve the Trans Mountain pipeline route through Burnaby to the Federal Court of Appeal within the next two weeks.

Along with the billboards, Notley will be writing an op-ed in BC media, in response to critical comments made by Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson.

"We don't believe the federally appointed NEB is the right place to review municipal processes", said Corrigan.

Kinder Morgan has set a May 31 deadline for when it will decide to continue with the project or pull the plug.

Notley has previously warned that B.C.'s delay tactics could bring consequences and her government is close to passing legislation that would give it the power to restrict oil shipments. "So we must deploy this tool with a cool hand, not an angry one".
