Federal Court of Canada found legal errors in a government joint review panel’s environmental assessment of the Kearl Tar Sands Project. Ecojustice and several non-profit organizations challenged the panel’s approval of the project, alleging that it had failed to seriously consider the climate change impacts of the project. The court agreed with the petitioner, holding that the panel failed to adequately support their conclusion that the project would cause only insignificant environmental harm.
