First Nations to use courts in pipeline fight

 


VANCOUVER — As the federal review of Kinder Morgan’s $6.8-billion Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion nears its end, at least a dozen First Nations continue to say the review is flawed, and they oppose the project over its potential environmental effects.

Those effects, they say, include the risk of tanker spills in Burrard Inlet.

Barring intervention in the review process by the new federal government under Justin Trudeau, these First Nations are prepared to take their fight to the courts.
