Trudeau also said Sunday that legislation is coming that will "reassert and reinforce" the fact that the federal government is well within its jurisdiction to approve the project and ensure it goes ahead.

Kinder Morgan has suspended all non-essential spending on the project pending reassurance from Ottawa that it will be able to go forward

Trudeau met Sunday with British Columbia's premier, who is blocking the project, and the premier of oil-rich Alberta, who desperately wants to see it go ahead.
