Trans Mountain defeat threatens Justin Trudeau’s re-election story

Justin Trudeau lost more than a big court battle in the pipeline war this week. He also lost part of his re-election narrative... NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh had called on Trudeau to refer the Trans Mountain file to the Supreme Court for a definitive read on its legal standing last April. At the time, the government dismissed the suggestion out of hand, claiming its case in federal court was bulletproof.
