Chief Justice Richard Wagner wrote the decision. He wrote that the law violated the juridiction of Canada’s provinces.

Alberta Premier Danielle Smith called it a great day.

Premier Smith praised former Premier Jason Kenney for launching the legal challenge to the Trudeau government.

Jason Kenney launched the challenge in 2021.
