GORMLEY - COURT OF APPEAL REJECT TM CLAIMS - FEBRUARY 5

The Federal Court of Appeal ruled unanimously yesterday to reject claims by Indigenous groups seeking an investigation into the publicly-owned Trans Mountain pipeline project, which has already been delayed for long stretches by court battles. The judges found Ottawa's consultation with Indigenous communities was "reasonable and meaningful," and found no basis to interfere with Ottawa's re-approval of the project. To share his thoughts on the court's decision and explain what happens next, John is joined by Dwight Newman, Professor of Law and Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Rights in Constitutional and International Law at the University of Saskatchewan.
