If this was a game of hockey, we’d be down to an overtime shootout.

A federal judge has Zambonied a narrow strip of ice for the players to skate on, and six Indigenous legal teams will get to take a shot.

It’s time for the home crowd to stand up and root for them. Please join me in making a donation to the First Nations challenging this toxic, dangerous oil tanker expansion on behalf of all of us.

[ Editor: Common Dreams reported yesterday that the Washington State Supreme Court has ruled that environmental defenders have the right to employ a defence of necessity when being tried for climate-related offences.  This decision follows a similar one from the Minnesota State Supreme Court. 

To date this defence has not been allowed in Canada. Will Offley]

The court's decision, explained one attorney, "creates a strong legal basis for climate protesters to justify their actions in a court of law."

If, as the maxim goes, “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing,” we ought to ask just why it is that good people so often do nothing.

Chief Lee Spahan from Coldwater Indian Band was happy to hear the news: the Federal Court of Appeal will hear his nation’s legal challenge against the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.

In a six-month trial, the provincial NDP government will have to fight against the treaty rights of Indigenous peoples whose traditional territory and burial grounds will be destroyed by a hydro project — one that now could be cancelled at the eleventh hour

Thank you for this opportunity to speak.

Before my arrest and throughout more than half a century of volunteer community contributions, I’d always worked within the bounds of law.

I took the longer, legal route to reverse government policies because it was viable to take those routes.

But there are things we know, without a doubt, about climate change that made my response to it on Burnaby Mountain fundamentally different.
