On Monday, 6 July 2015, the Blueberry First Nations and the Saulteau First Nations each filed a motion with the Federal Court of Appeal for leave to judicially review GIC’s decision to approve NGTL’s North Montney Project (Hearing Order GH-001-2014).

The applicants provided a number of reasons for the motions, including the Crown’s duty to consult and accommodate the Applicants’ constitutional rights, concerns about direct and cumulative impacts to culturally-sensitive areas and Treaty rights, the adequacy of reasons, and whether the Project is within federal jurisdiction.

Respondents have 10 days to file a response to the motions.
