Alberta is stepping in to support TransCanada Corp.'s Keystone XL project, drawing scorn from environmentalists while inching the long-stalled pipeline closer to fruition.
TransCanada recently said that it has secured shipping commitments totalling roughly 500,000 barrels a day for the $8 billion pipeline, including a deal with the Alberta government to ship 50,000 barrels a day of provincially owned crude on the line.
Travel distance is the main concern for the Saskatchewan government in its latest spat with Alberta over licence plates.
Saskatchewan recently proposed that the meeting over the licence plate dispute be moved to Medicine Hat because of its geographic location in relation to the capital cities.
"Travel considerations were on the mind of the Saskatchewan ministers," said a government spokesperson in an email response.
Alberta's transportation minister says they are making contingency plans to clear and maintain roads as they monitor the financial fallout of a multinational United Kingdom construction company.
Brian Mason says for now they believe the bankruptcy of Carillion PLC won't affect the operations of its Canadian subsidiary.
Carillion Canada maintains more than 40 per cent of Alberta's highways.

The federal Liberals have already laid out their plans to ensure the national carbon price hits $50 a tonne by 2022, but government documents indicate Ottawa is eyeing hikes beyond that time horizon.
Federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna says no decisions have been made about a carbon price post-2022. However, a federal Finance Department document recently distributed to Alberta reporters by the province's United Conservative Party (UCP) discusses the nuts and bolts of the federal carbon-pricing "backstop" or benchmark.
It all started as a curiosity for Ron Kube. How much electricity was he and his family using in a year?
The average home uses 7,200 kWh of power annually. Kube measured his home's consumption by looking at his monthly power bills from the past three years.
His St. Albert home was using more than 12,000 kWh per year.
Determined to reduce his electricity consumption, Kube, a computing science professor at the University of Alberta, bought a plug meter to measure where he was consuming the most energy.
Every New Year brings with it an exciting array of technical possibilities. Many of these, just a few years ago, would have been considered futuristic and improbable.
So, what main are the main themes predicted for 2018?
