"We find that Canada offered only a brief, hurried and inadequate opportunity … to exchange and discuss information and to dialogue," the ruling says.

At COP 21Ban Ki Moon, in Paris, urged states to negotiate with a global vision not with national vested interests (Cop21 press conference)

A global vision  would be to address article 2 and at a minimum to immediately end all subsidies for fossil fuel, to calculate the carbon budget for each state, to divest in fossil fuels and to reinvest in renewable energy, to conserve sinks -such as old growth forests and bogs, to strengthen conservation of  biodiversity, to avoid all false solutions such as nuclear, geo-engineering and biofuels which would all violate principles within the UNFCCC, to compensate for historical  emissions, and to institute a fair and just transitasion for workers affected negatively by the new vision.  and to promote nature based solutions  and socially equitablh and enviromentally sound suchas solar, wind, tidal, and geothermal

Toronto-based mining giant, Barrick Gold, spilled cyanide solution into five Argentina rivers shortly after firing an engineer who raised serious safety concerns about the mining operation responsible for the contamination.

Court documents obtained by National Observer allege that Barrick, the largest gold producer in the world, abruptly dismissed senior engineer Raman Autar in 2014 to “escape publication” of critical health, safety and environmental violations he found at the Veladero mine, one of the world's largest gold mines.

The Recommendation for Approval by the National Energy Board Continues a Pattern of Unlawful Conduct

 

VANCOUVER, BC and MUSQUEAM, SQUAMISH and TSLEIL-WAUTUTH TERRITORY --(Marketwired - June 22, 2016) - The Tsleil-Waututh Nation, the "People of the Inlet," has launched a second legal challenge of the National Energy Board's (NEB) review of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline and tanker expansion proposal (KMEX). Tsleil-Waututh has applied to the Federal Court of Appeal seeking to set aside the NEB report recommending KMEX project approval, referring to the NEB recommendation as "unlawful, invalid, or unreasonable" in its court documents.

The first legal action taken in May 2014 and still before the Federal Court of Appeal challenged the NEB failure to consult Tsleil-Waututh during the scoping process for the environmental review. The second legal action filed includes, among other things, a charge that significant adverse environmental effects associated with project-related marine shipping activities were not considered by the NEB as required under the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. It also includes a charge that the NEB failed to consider the landmark independent assessment of the KMEX project conducted by Tsleil-Waututh as a matter of its own law and jurisdiction.
