Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is cutting oil production in that province.

Alberta will begin cutting oil by just under nine per cent starting in the new year.

And that brings the question: How does a decrease in oil production in Alberta affect Saskatchewan?

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe says, "You must understand there are differences between what's happening in Alberta, and we understand what the government of Alberta is attempting to do here, but the fact of the matter is the percentage of heavy oil in Saskatchewan vs. heavy oil in Alberta is different. The level of integration by percentage of that heavy oil fully integrated in the system is different between our provinces."

Oil is scheduled to be a prime topic at the First Ministers Meeting.
