Media Statement: Stand.earth reacts to BC Government referring Dilbit Ban to the Courts

For immediate release

Vancouver, BC — “Today’s announcement shows that the BC government is ready to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to the Kinder Morgan pipeline.” said Sven Biggs, Climate and Energy Campaigner for Stand.earth. “The Premier was clear, he is going to do what it takes to defend the coast and by referring the diluted bitumen ban  to the BC Supreme Court the BC government is showing they are confident that they are well within the framework of the constitution.”

“In the last few weeks we have heard a lot of threats from politicians in Alberta and Ottawa, but neither jurisdiction has been willing or able to follow through on any of that talk” said Biggs. “Kinder Morgan now has to face yet another legal challenge and a province that has recommitted to holding the pipeline to the highest possible standard.”
