Ecojustice announces a major victory
This morning Ecojustice announced a victory in Canada’s Supreme Court:
Today, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the Canadian government has violated a national environmental law aimed at ensuring sustainable development. In a case centered on the proposed Red Chris mine in British Columbia, the Court ruled that the federal government cannot split projects into artificially small parts to avoid rigorous environmental assessments. The ruling also guarantees that the public will be consulted about major industrial projects, including large metal mines and tar sands developments.
Congratulations to Ecojustice on this victory. And a big thank you to Ecojustice and their lawyers as well for working so hard to hold the government accountable to the law in the service of protecting our environment.
