A US ambassador in the United States says he has done some pre-massive diploma with the Trump administration of Alberta's plans to force output cuts on its oil industry.
David MacNaughton says that no-one in the U.S. government has risen with the Alberta Premier Rachel Notley movement.
Still, MacNaughton says he has met his peers, Kelly Craft, to emphasize that the cuts are not only temporary and that Canada does not feel that they break free trade rules.
Notley has ordered a compulsory cut of 8.7 per cent in oil production to reduce the garbage of Alberta oil that impels steep price reductions.

Watch below: (From December 3, 2018) For the first time in a generation, Alberta government will put a cap on the amount of oil that industry can produce. As Tom Vernon says, the movement is not his critics.
MacNaughton notes that production cuts are not generally loved in the industry and some unhappy players are likely to be behind the US administration.
He says he wants to make Craft informed about the matter.
"It's always better to make the facts on board," said MacNaughton on Tuesday. "It was very acceptable. I was in her Christmas party on Sunday night, so we had a good opportunity to chat about it."
The expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline, which would be triple capable of B.C. Coast is now a legal restriction despite being approved two years ago as Ottawa reviews the effects on the UN environment and B.C.

MacNaughton says he has also noted for Craft that having the end of the US approved endstone pipeline in the USA would also help with the problems of Alberta.
That project is also tied in the courts.
