Alberta and Saskatchewan Resolve Issue Over License Plates

The trade war that was brewing between Alberta and Saskatchewan seemed to soften on Monday.

Just hours before a deadline that would have seen the two provinces head to arbitration, Saskatchewan dropped their rule that Alberta license plates be banned from job sites in Saskatchewan.

Alberta trade minister Deron Bilous weighed in on the backtracking.

Saskatchewan, for their part, said that Alberta blinked first when it came to their beer markups, something that Bilous said was a separate issue from their license plates.

Should the deadline have come and gone, the two sides would have gone to binding arbitration, that could have levied a large fine against Saskatchewan.
