As we head into the long weekend and begin to prepare our family feasts, we wanted to send a special shout-out to you!

From sending well wishes to sharing our work, the overwhelming amount of encouragement and support you’ve given us throughout this case is heartwarming — and does not go unnoticed.

Throughout this week’s leg of the Kinder Morgan mega-hearing, we heard compelling arguments from the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, Coldwater Indian Band, Upper Nicola Band, Stk’emlupsemc Te Secwepemc (SSN), Stó:lō and Squamish Nation, the cities of Burnaby and Vancouver.  And yesterday, Ecojustice lawyers, on behalf of Raincoast Conservation Foundation and Living Oceans Society, made their submissions to the Court.

Whew! It’s been a long, hard-fought week, but having you in our corner, rooting for us every step of the way makes it just a little bit easier. Thank you for supporting the work we do — you make it possible for us to put our best foot forward each and every time we step into a courtroom.

If you haven’t already, we encourage you to check out our incredible articling student, Liv French’s daily recaps on what’s been going on at the hearing.

Next week we will be right back to it. Beginning Tuesday, we’ll hear submissions from Kinder Morgan, the National Energy Board, and the Government of Canada — be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram so you don’t miss a single video update!

Until then, all of us at Ecojustice wish you and your friends and family, a safe and happy long weekend.

P.S. This week also saw TransCanada pull the plug on the Energy East pipeline — read on to learn more about the role we played in helping local communities hold the line against this project.
