    Watching Kenney in the hours after his swearing-in Tuesday was to watch a political animal unleashed on his dream job. A true blue cabinet was sworn in, a tanker ban attacked, a carbon tax repeal bill announced and a dash to Ottawa booked. Most controversially of all, a legislative tap-turn-down revenge on pipeline opponent B.C. was proclaimed.

    If that were to happen, could the federal government step in and declare some sort of emergency and turns the taps back on ( either by a direct order from Ottawa or Canadian Armed Forces) ?
    I do not think anybody would win that fight, what about if the AB Gov slowed down the flow of oil for a few days, let's say for pipeline checks.

    I beleive most of their gasoline and diesel comes up from washington refineries. They get their oil from alaska (by tanker!) and a bit from TMP.
    The biggest impact would be restricting aviation fuel from TMP, which I believe supplies the majority of YVR's needs. Westjet would be hurt.

    Gas prices would increase just due to uncertainty at the wholesale level, but not to $4.

    The bigger concern with turning off the taps is that it would put Canada at risk of a challenge/complaint under NAFTA, since a lot of oil crosses the border. Not allowed to restrict free trade across the border. But you could certainly restrict products that terminate in Vancouver area.
