"The Trans Mountain issue clearly has the magnifying glass over it, but we also have other issues that affect our Canadian economic future", Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister said.

Meanwhile, with mere days until the May 31 deadline set by Kinder Morgan to find resolution in the continuing pipeline stalemate, Notley said Wednesday she's confident the target will be met.

Notley said Alberta and the federal government are both working on plans to ensure the project proceeds.

Meanwhile, no suitors have publicly emerged to step into KMI.'s shoes following comments last week from Finance Minister Morneau that "plenty of investors would be interested in taking on this project", after the federal government said it would offer an "indemnity" to guarantee it is built.
