“The only parties with standing to bring this action in this court are the (Attorney General of Alberta) and the (Attorney General of Canada),” says Judge Robert Hall.
In his ruling, the Judge said only the Attorney General of Alberta or the Attorney General of Canada can bring the matter to court:
“The only parties with standing to bring this action in this court are the (Attorney General of Alberta) and the (Attorney General of Canada).”
“Neither party could direct me to any cases in which one province has sued another province seeking a declaration of constitutional invalidity of legislation enacted by the defendant province,” added Hall.
This is a big loss for the hypocritical BC NDP Government, who have made the insane claim that they simultaneously have the right to block Alberta oil from going through pipelines in BC, while also claiming that Alberta doesn’t have the right to block oil shipments to BC with the ‘Turn Off The Taps’ legislation.
BC has said they are studying the ruling.
Alberta has said they are ‘pleased.’
The case will continue in Federal Court.
