In a decision announced this morning, the court unanimously ruled that the federal government’s approval of the Trans Mountain Expansion project violated its legal obligations to protect endangered orcas under the Species at Risk Act. First Nations also won their cases.
A massive thank you to our lawyers at Ecojustice and our partners on this case Living Oceans and all of you who have supported our efforts. This is not over yet and today is cause for celebration.
