Returning to Court for the Killer Whales

We’re headed back to court for killer whales. ⠀

Last week we announced that we are returning to court to challenge the federal government’s re-approval of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion with Living Oceans and Ecojustice.

Why? We think that the government failed to comply with its responsibility to protect the critically endangered Southern Resident killer whales when it re-approved the project on June 18, 2019.⠀

This is the second time we have appealed to the courts concerning the effects of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion on Southern Resident killer whales. We won our first case on Trans Mountain in 2018, when the Federal Court of Appeal struck down Cabinet’s previous approval of the project.⠀
