The Supreme Court has dismissed B.C.’s appeal of the Trans Mountain pipeline project.

The province was asking for jurisdiction over the project, but the Supreme Court deemed that the natural energy project was completely a federal jurisdiction.

According to CTV, “If B.C. had been successful they could have been in a position to block heavy oil from moving through the pipeline, throwing into jeopardy the multi-billion dollar project and expansion that the federal government bought from Kinder Morgan in 2018.”

The federal government successfully argued that giving B.C. jurisdiction would lead to the province basically having a veto over projects that span over provinces.
