Some cheerful news from north of the border:
[Canada’s] top court dealt a blow to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s environmental policy on Friday, declaring the Liberal government’s Impact Assessment Act for major development projects involves an unconstitutional breach of provincial jurisdiction.
The case was heard after the federal government appealed last year’s ruling by Alberta’s top court, which declared the Impact Assessment Act unconstitutional because it violated the division of powers between Ottawa and the provinces. Federal Conservatives and provincial opponents — including Premier Doug Ford — have long lampooned it as the “No More Pipelines Act,” arguing that it imposes an undue burden on the private sector and will slow down or prevent major projects from getting built.
This pretty much leaves the United States as the only country not building pipelines!
