BC's Trans Mountain appeal dismissed by Supreme Court

BY , Jan 16, 2020 11:27 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

In a unanimous ruling, the Supreme Court of Canada has dismissed British Columbia's move to restrict what can flow through the Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion project.

Today's ruling from the bench after several hours of hearings removes one of the remaining obstacles for the project.

B-C was trying to block the flow of heavy oil through the line, which would run alongside an existing pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby.

Legal challenges by Indigenous communities could still halt the project.
