The ripple effect of the Federal Court of Appeal decision to quash approval of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion starts with Alberta Premier Rachel Notley pulling the province out of the federal climate change plan.
According to Canadian Press, Notley is calling on the federal government to immediately appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court of Canada.
She says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau must also call an emergency session of Parliament to fix the process so that the pipeline can be built.
Until that happens, she says the province will remain outside the federal climate plan.
The federal government has said it is reviewing the court decision and plans on pushing forward with the project.
