KAMLOOPS — The B.C. government says it will ask the courts if it has the right to protect its environment by restricting diluted bitumen in the Trans Mountain pipeline.

Premier John Horgan says his government is filing a constitutional reference case on the issue, which has been at the centre of a heated dispute between his province and Alberta.

Horgan denied that B-C is backing down in the dispute, saying the intention is simply to have cooler heads prevail.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has lifted the ban on imports of B-C wine in response to Horgan's announcement.
