As the province hires well know lawyer Joseph Arvay to take the jurisdiction issue to court in a fight over the Trans-Mountain pipeline the environment critic doesn’t think they have much of leg to stand on.
Peter Milobar says he respects Joseph Arvay and his impressive legal resume but the jurisdiction issues seems pretty clear.
“Obviously a very well equipped lawyer that they have sought out. He has never been one to shy away from taking on a challenge. It will be interesting to see where that proceeds within the courts. Obviously other than perhaps Mr. Heyman and the Premier most people in Canada seem to feel that there really is no constitutional grounds.”
Milobar says the pending legal challenge is nothing more than a delay game from the province in its battle to stop the Trans-Mountain pipeline.
The province hired Arvay after Premier John Horgan pledged to refer a constitutional question around jurisdiction to the courts.
