Court quashes Northern Gateway approval

The Federal Court of Appeal has overturned the government’s approval of a controversial pipeline proposal that would link Alberta’s oilsands to British Columbia’s north coast.

In a written decision, the court says Canada fell short in its duty to consult with aboriginal people before giving the green light to Enbridge’s $7.9-billion Northern Gateway project.

The pipeline proposal received federal approval in 2014 but has been mired in legal uncertainty ever since.

Eight First Nations, including the Gitxaala, Gitga’at, Haisla, and the Haida, along with four environmental groups and one labour union launched the legal challenge.
