The group filed a legal challenge this month. The claim is claiming the government does not have the authority to approve the pipeline.
“We are strongly of the view that there are fundamental flaws in the hearing process and in the decision of the Joint Review Panel, which ultimately deprive cabinet of the legal authority to make a decision,” said BC Nature lawyer Chris Tollefson according to a report by Business Vancouver.
Among those flaws, according to Tollefson, was the cabinet’s lack of reasons for approving the project. “It did not render a decision that’s transparent or capable of being reviewed or acted upon,” he said.
