An executive summary of the ruling was written by Justice Eleanor Dawson and released on Thursday morning, revealing that the National Energy Board's assessment of the project was extremely flawed and too unreliable to base the federal cabinet's approval for the project in 2016.
To prevent the cancellation of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion by Kinder Morgan, Ottawa bought the Trans Mountain pipeline and the expansion project from the company in May.
"It ensures that the project will only proceed when flaws in the plan have been addressed, which we feel will lead to a more acceptable outcome", NSBIA president Bryce Herman said in the statement. That means ensuring the highest level over governance - including environmental protection.
Christie said it's hard to understand why Ottawa continues to fail at that part of consultation when it's been made so clear in previous court rulings. As there are no guarantees projects will be built, even after receiving regulatory and governmental approvals, Canada will be perceived as a less-reliable place for investment. "That is extremely alarming". They can appeal the decision to the Supreme Court of Canada or they can re-engage in the consultation process with Indigenous and First Nations peoples.
The court combined into one case almost two dozen lawsuits filed by First Nations, environmental groups and the cities of Vancouver and Burnaby calling for the energy board's review to be overturned.
The court cited two main failures. The court said there was no "meaningful two-way dialogue".
"The meeting notes show little or no meaningful responses from the Crown consultation team to the concerns of the indigenous applicants".
"It's quite a slap to the government by the court on the grounds of reconciliation with First Nations", said Kathryn Harrison, a professor of political science at University of British Columbia.
Andrew Weaver, Leader, B.C. Green Party joins BNN Bloomberg's Catherine Murray for his thoughts on the Federal Court of Appeal's decision to nullify the Trans Mountain expansion approval.
"At some point, as a country, we have to wrap our head around how these huge energy projects (move forward)", he says. "The court has stepped in where Canada has failed to protect and respect our rights and our water".
It is unclear how long a delay the project now faces. They were supported by the province of British Columbia, which was an intervener, as was Alberta.

The Canadian government has recently moved to nationalize the expansion of the controversial pipeline.
The proposed expansion would almost triple the flow capacity through the Canadian mainline pipeline so that oil could be exported from British Columbia to California and Asia. It would also increase the number of tankers in Burrard Inlet sevenfold.
In 2013, Trans Mountain submitted an application to the National Energy Board for the Trans Mountain expansion project, stating that the primary objective of the project is to provide additional capacity to transport crude oil from Alberta to markets in the Pacific Rim, including Asia.
A second part of the ruling said the National Energy Board erred by not including marine tanker traffic in the scope of the project, thereby failing to consider the impact of oil tankers on southern resident killer whales under endangered species legislation.
Its report to the government failed to give Ottawa the information "it needed in order to properly assess the public interest, including the project's environmental effects - matters it was legally obligated to assess", the ruling states.
"Communities across North America will not back down until Trans Mountain - as well as Keystone XL and Enbridge's Line 3 - are canceled once and for all", she added.
For several years, they have been leading a growing protest movement against the pipeline, which they say threatens the water and land their communities depend on.
He said he was taken aback by the extent of the decision, but is grateful the court "stood on the right side of history".
Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson shared his fellow mayor's conviction that the court ruling is "monumental".
The Trans Mountain expansion would almost triple capacity on an existing line from Edmonton, Alberta to a port in the Vancouver area for export.
Ecojustice, the Living Oceans Society and the Raincoast Conservation Foundation called the ruling a "critical win" for the climate and coastal ecosystems.
