Court quashes Trudeau’s approval of Trans Mountain pipeline - National Observer

The ruling confirms longstanding criticism from affected First Nations that the Trudeau government took a "paternalistic," "unrealistic," and "inadequate" approach to consulting them, failing in its legal duty under the Constitution. The Tsleil-Waututh Nation, which occupies unceded territories in what is now known as the Burrard Inlet in the Vancouver region, and other affected First Nations launched the case almost immediately after the Trudeau government approved the project in November 2016.
