CBC goes to court to get Chevron to unseal documents in $9.5B US environmental battle

CBC News has filed a motion to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice to force Chevron Corp. to unseal court records in a decades-long environmental battle with approximately 30,000 Indigenous Ecuadorian villagers.

An appeal hearing in Toronto on Tuesday will continue to hear arguments with significant implications and will raise the question of what responsibility Canadian corporations have for possible harm caused abroad by their corporate affiliates.
