The Canadian Federal Court of Appeal issued a ruling denying approval for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project. Leaders from the Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations believe this ruling offers a new chance for the Canadian government to fulfil its promises of reconciliation. In its decision, the appellate court said the government failed in its constitutional duty to give appropriate consideration to and engage in dialogue with First Nations impacted by the project.
