Alberta Premier Rachel Notley wants the Feds to take action and fast, in the wake of the decision on the Trans Mountain pipeline from the Federal Court of Appeal Thursday, August 30.

The ruling basically stops the pipeline in it's tracks and Notley blames Ottawa.

So, she's taken action.

"Until the Federal Government gets it's act together, Alberta is pulling out of the Federal Climate Plan. And let's be clear. Without Alberta that plan isn't worth the paper it's written on."

The court's decision isn't sitting well with Notley, who staked a lot of her political future on that pipeline being built.

"Albertans are angry. I'm angry. Alberta has done everything right and we've been let down. The combined result of the actions taken by the Harper government, the current Federal Government, the National Energy Board and the Federal Court of Appeal, means that the current state of affairs in Canada right now, is such that building a pipeline to tide water is practically impossible."

Notley has told Prime Minister Justin Trudeau he needs to immediately recall Parliament to deal with the matter and to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court.
