“Dubious, bizarre lawyering” nets First Nation federal court rebuke, $2000 fine in anti-TMX challenge 

Coastal First Nation resistance to TMX suffered an embarrassing setback after the Federal Court of Appeal rebuked two groups and fined Tsleil-Waututh $2000 for “defiant” and “most serious” breaches in applications for judicial review of approval for the $7.5 billion pipeline expansion.

“Squamish Nation filed submissions adopting those of Tsleil-Waututh Nation…(but) is not as badly out of compliance,” writes Justice David Stratas in his September 25, 2019 ruling, which notes their filings accuse him of bias and therefore ineligible for a panel that ultimately hears the appeal.
