Regulator's report unlikely to settle Trans Mountain pipeline expansion battle

Regulator's report unlikely to settle Trans Mountain pipeline expansion battleAn environmental group that tried to widen the scope of the National Energy Board's reconsideration of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion says it fully expects the board to endorse the project again in its ruling today. "I think the NEB has a long record of siding with industry over communities and other concerns ... so we have every expectation that they're going to recommend the project go ahead despite the serious problems with it," said Sven Biggs, climate campaigner for Stand.earth, a Vancouver environmental group formerly called ForestEthics. The federal regulator is scheduled to release its recommendations today but the restart of construction of the controversial crude conduit from Edmonton to Burnaby, B.C., still faces hurdles.

Crown expected to wrap evidence portion in Dennis Oland murder trialA bloodstained jacket, a missing cellphone and a multitude of police errors — Crown prosecutors are expected to conclude the evidence portion of their case against Dennis Oland at his second degree murder trial in Saint John, N.B., today. Oland has been charged with the bludgeoning death of his father, multimillionaire businessman Richard Oland, in what the prosecution has described as a fit of rage spurred by Dennis Oland's money problems. The final prosecution witness, John Ainsworth, will be cross examined by defence this afternoon.


In the news today, Feb. 22

In the news today, Feb. 22An environmental group says it expects the National Energy Board to again approve the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion when it releases results of its reconsideration of the project today. Sven Biggs, climate campaigner for Stand.earth, says the federal regulator's track record is to approve pipelines, but he says that won't stop opponents from launching legal challenges and street protests. The NEB's 2016 approval of the project was set aside last summer by the Federal Court of Appeal, which found the regulator had not properly considered how southern resident killer whales would be affected by additional tanker traffic.
