Supreme Court of Canada Dismisses B.C.’s Attempt to Restrict Flow on Trans Mountain
January 16, 2020 – Calgary, Alberta
The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) is pleased, but not surprised, the Supreme Court of Canada unanimously dismissed the Government of British Columbia’s appeal for legislative authority to restrict oil shipments through its borders – a challenge that was intended to block the Trans Mountain expansion pipeline.
This is a project that has undergone historic levels of consultation, reviews and court challenges, and at each turn has been found to be in the best interests of all Canadians. It is time to unite behind the completion of this nation-building project so Canadians can start to benefit from selling our responsibly produced resources to global markets.
– Tim McMillan, President and CEO, CAPP
