Court of Appeal reviews BC’s ability to restrict transportation of commodities

553 BC Court of Appeal


The BC Court of Appeal will hold a five-day hearing to consider provincial powers in the political battle over the future of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project. The BC government is seeking the ability to restrict the transport of oil through its territory and restrict bitumen shipments from Alberta.  The Court will determine whether the proposed amendments in BC’s Environmental Management Act will be valid or overridden by federal law.
