Three huge pipeline proposals imperiled climate action and threatened nature, said their critics. Largely as a result of court battles, two are now dead and one faces a major setback. This talk gave the opportunity to hear about the legal and political impacts of the Trans Mountain, Energy East, and Northern Gateway decisions from the litigators who argued the cases.
Professor Jocelyn Stacey's book argues for a reframing of environmental law. The book elaborates what the rule of law requires of decision-makers in light of our ever-present vulnerability to catastrophic environmental harm. In this talk, Professor Stacey made the case that environmental issues constitute an emergency. She argued that this emergency perspective offers important insights on the rule-of-law failures that led to the approval of the Kinder Morgan pipeline.
