“The announcement was just made this morning. We need time to look at the conditions and then we will have a review of the project,” Wan Zulkiflee Wan Ariffin told reporters at the sidelines of an event.

The Canadian government on Tuesday approved the project, ending a three-year wait for a decision and drawing condemnation from environmentalists.
