VANCOUVER – The Federal Court of Appeal has granted a temporary injunction to Alberta’s so-called turn-off-the-taps-legislation.

The Government of British Columbia won a temporary injunction in the fight against the bill. B.C.’s Attorney General David Eby addressed the decision shortly after it was made.

It’s another legal hurdle for the Trans Mountain pipeline and oil tanker expansion proposal.

Today, B.C.’s Court of Appeal ordered provincial ministers to reconsider the conditions hastily attached to the project by former Premier Christy Clark.

There’s no timeline on that process, but First Nations are encouraging the province to partner with them and “jointly review” Trans Mountain’s threats to rivers, beaches, drinking water, neighbourhoods and human health.

If nothing else, nine days in the North Fraser Pretrial Centre taught me quite a few valuable (and in some cases, unexpected) lessons about the realities of short term incarceration in Canada’s prison system.  These included the realization that while extremely unpleasant, a short-term internment is not necessarily an awful experience, depending on how you approach it, and that you may encounter significantly more kindness and humanity from fellow inmates than you might otherwise expect.
