BC Nature Appeals to Supreme Court of Canada in the Fight Against TMX

Help BC Nature in the fight against the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion!

BC Nature is taking its fight to protect B.C.’s coast against the Trans Mountain Expansion Project (TMX) to the Supreme Court of Canada. BC Nature is asking the Supreme Court to review the decision of the Federal Court of Appeal made in September 2019, which dismissed applications made by BC Nature and First Nations, and various other groups seeking judicial review of federal cabinet’s approval of TMX.

BC Nature is disappointed by the NEB’s cursory consideration of marine bird species at risk in the reconsideration report. “The Federal Court of Appeal was crystal clear about what the NEB needed to do to satisfy its obligations under SARA to protect marine birds and other listed species adversely affected by this project,” says Chris Tollefson, lawyer for Tollefson Law who has represented BC Nature pro bono since the original NEB hearings began in 2014. “It is unfortunate we have to go back to court to ensure these species get the benefit of the law as it was written and intended.”
