Let’s get ready to rumblllllllllllle!:
Tensions over the Trans Mountain pipeline increased Thursday with British Columbia announcing plans to launch a lawsuit over new Alberta legislation that could restrict fuel exports to the West Coast.
B.C. Attorney General David Eby said his province will ask the Court of Queen’s Bench in Alberta to declare the legislation unconstitutional on the grounds that one province cannot punish another.
The bill, which allows limits on fuel exports to B.C., was passed by Alberta’s legislature on Wednesday.
If Alberta moves to implement the act, B.C. will apply for an injunction and seek damages, Eby said.
Behold the multi-tiered legal system of Canada:
St. Catharines city council is adding its voice to community members who are unhappy that animal abuse charges were dropped against a local veterinarian.
Councillors unanimously passed a motion Monday night to send their objections to criminal charges being withdrawn against Dr. Mahavir Rekhi to Ontario’s Ministry of the Attorney General.
They are also asking for a written explanation from the Crown as to why the charges were dropped.
That does nothing. This is a pointless gesture in the face of absolutist law from activist judges and incompetent lawyers.
But it looks good to the voters.
