The court ruled that the National Energy Board did not properly consult with First Nations about the project.

Mayor Gregor Robertson, who has long criticized the project, called the decision a “monumental win for the rights of Indigenous peoples…”

Vision Vancouver Coun. Andrea Reimer has also been an ardent critic of the pipeline.
