The British Columbia Court of Appeal ruled that the BC Environmental Assessment Certificate for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project is valid and remains in place.

Trans Mountain is continuing with construction and planning of the Expansion and is committed to building the Expansion in a manner that minimizes impacts to the environment and respects the values and priorities of Canadians.

The Court invited the BC Government to review the amendments to the Canada Energy Regulator Reconsideration Report (CER) (formally known as the National Energy Board) to determine whether they impact the provincial conditions that are placed on the Project. The court affirmed the Province is limited to making adjustments or additions to the provincial marine conditions and must do so within the limited scope of provincial authority over marine issues.
