Alberta plates not allowed on new Saskatchewan infrastructure projects

Alberta licence plates no longer welcome on new Saskatchewan road projects

New contracts awarded by the ministry will require suppliers to ensure that no vehicles displaying Alberta license plates are present on ministry-funded work sites. "He has one week to kill this ridiculous restriction or we will be taking him to court".

Bilous said the move "smacks of desperation".

"Brad Wall is absolutely desperate, we know our economy is growing by 4 percent, their economy is in the dumps", Bilous said.

"Saskatchewan contractors tell us that vehicles with Saskatchewan plates are not welcome on Government of Alberta job sites", said Highways and Infrastructure Minister and Minister Responsible for SaskBuilds David Marit. The new rule won't apply to existing projects like the Regina bypass. This will include contractors, sub-contractors, consultants and workers. Ministry staff will enforce the contract provision through job site monitoring.

Marit said that could mean the difference for Saskatchewan contractors whose bids come in close to two or three per cent higher than those from Alberta.

Alberta contractors working on Saskatchewan highways will need to register their vehicles in Saskatchewan before their work begins.

Bath Spa university vice-chancellor paid £808k
She was at Bath Spa, which only gained full university status in August 2005 and had just 7,630 students past year . Prof Dame Glynis Breakwell declared she was leaving from the University of Bath after a line over her £468,000 pay.

"This is simply levelling the playing field", Marit said.

Alberta officials said there were no prior discussions or advance warning of the change from Saskatchewan. "I've checked with the department, I've checked with the construction association, there is no such restriction". As local construction companies obtain a larger share of the Saskatchewan construction marketplace they develop the people, equipment and capacity to maximize their economies of scale.

There is no such rule, he said, and issued an ultimatum: Roll it back within a week, or Alberta will see you in court.

The plate feud is the latest cross-boundary sniping between Wall's right-of-centre government and Premier Rachel Notley's left-leaning NDP.

The Alberta government has set a deadline for Saskatchewan to revoke a ban on Alberta licence plates at job sites, or face a lawsuit.
