Canadian Prime Ministers meet today in Saskatoon on the final day of their annual gathering, and Quebec expects to be at the center of the conversation.
Prime Minister Alberto Jason Kenney said he is trying to work with Prime Minister Québec Francois Legault to transfer oil through the province's pipeline as part of a future energy corridor.
However, Legault said that in Quebec there is no "social acceptability" for oil pipelines.
Kenney said he believed Legault understood the financial pain that Albertans felt. He said provinces receiving compensatory payments should help develop resources that will pay bills in the federation.
Manitoba Prime Minister Brian Pallister said he plans to express his concerns over Legault about a new Quebec law that bans certain public officials from carrying religious symbols.
Prime Minister Saskatchewan Scott Moe is hosting a meeting of the Federation Council and said some disagreements are expected.
The prime ministers will also discuss health care, arctic sovereignty and cannabis.
