“It’s no longer about one project,” Business Council of British Columbia CEO Greg D’Avignon told StarMetro in a phone interview. “It’s about stability, our faith in democracy, the rule of law and confidence in our country.

“After a democratic decision has been made saying, ‘We don’t recognize that democratic decision’ is fundamentally at odds with how we operate as a country … It’s not how our country has worked for 150 years.”

D’Avignon was one of dozens of business leaders who issued a scathing letter Thursday demanding prime minister Justin Trudeau intervene when he meets with Horgan and Alberta premier Rachel Notley on Sunday for emergency talks.
