ADVISORY: B.C. Supreme Court to hear court challenge over water use by fracking operations on Monday


VANCOUVER — A lawsuit targeting water withdrawals by oil and gas companies in north-eastern British Columbia will be heard by the B.C. Supreme Court on Monday.

Ecojustice lawyers, representing Sierra Club BC and the Wilderness Committee, will argue that the B.C. Oil and Gas Commission’s practice of repeatedly granting short-term water approvals to oil and gas companies is unlawful.
