In a landmark decision, the Supreme Court of Ireland has agreed to hear a climate lawsuit against the Irish government, due in part, the court said, to the “degree of urgency” posed by climate change. The decision makes the suit, dubbed “Climate Case Ireland” by the plaintiffs, Friends of the Irish Environment (FIE), one of only a handful of human rights-based climate cases to reach any country’s Supreme Court.

Canadians can expect more disruptive protests if the federal government pushes forward with the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion against the wishes of some of the Indigenous communities it will pass through, says a British Columbia lawyer and Indigenous negotiator.

In the last month, Indigenous people across the country set up barricades on train tracks, roads and bridges, in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en Nation hereditary chiefs, some of whom object to the construction of a natural-gas pipeline through their traditional territory.
