Even as Trudeau prepared to leave for Lima on Thursday, he wasn't scheduled to meet with Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and B.C. Premier Jon Horgan, but that changed while his plane was still on the runway when notice of the meeting was released to the media.

"It became very clear that the level of polarization around this debate required significant measures," Trudeau said of the change to his itinerary.

"I wanted to be able to sit down with the premier of British Columbia, the premier of Alberta together and discuss issues of the national interest and demonstrate the federal government's' commitment to getting this project built."

Horgan suggests he's open to compromise

Both premiers arrived in Ottawa on Saturday afternoon.

Notley did not speak with the media, but Horgan spoke with CBC News shortly after his arrival at Macdonald–Cartier International Airport in Ottawa.

"My objectives are to continue to defend B.C.'s coast and the people that live in British Columbia who are concerned about the catastrophic consequences of a diluted bitumen spill," he said.

Horgan said his government is attempting the resolve the issue through the courts, rather than by engaging in open conflict with other governments, but suggested he might be willing to listen to compromises that did not include a court-determined settlement.

"Happy to look at that. Happy to look at that, sure," he said.
