British Columbia will Appeal Crt. Decision it CANNOT regulate flow of bitumen through Transmountain Pipeline

Supreme Court of Canada In Session


The headlines in yesterday's newz looked dire for BC.  The ROC [Rest of Canada] no doubt chortled in happiness.....as BC's own Appeals Court ruled against the province's attempt to control oil tanker traffic through its narrow, dangerous and environmentally fragile waters.

Court rules B.C. can't limit oil shipments in major blow for pipeline fight

VANCOUVER -- British Columbia lost the largest tool in its toolbox to halt the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion with a court decision Friday that concluded it can't restrict oil shipments through its borders.

The unanimous ruling from the B.C. Court of Appeal represented a major win for the project, which the federal government and Alberta see as crucial to getting more oilsands crude to overseas markets.

….

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said the decision is an occasion for "real hope" for hard-working people and the project will allow his province to realize a fair price for its resources and create new jobs.


In light of the court's decision, we hope that the B.C. government will respect the rule of law and end its campaign of obstruction," he said.


Kenney also said the expansion could provide much-needed relief at B.C. pumps. Premier John Horgan has disputed that the project would ease sky-high gas prices, noting its purpose is to transport heavy oil for shipment overseas...."

**********************

Greencrow says:  Albertan Premier Kenney and many other Canadians just don't get it.  Even though Kenney basically admits that British Columbians are being punished at the gas pump for wanting to save their environment...he thinks we can be bought or bullied off our position of wanting to save our province.  Perhaps Kenny and Canadians even think this is the end of the matter.  Very wishful thinking, IMO.  Please read the subsequent newz story from the CBC regarding BC's intention to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court of Canada.  I will have comments to follow:


**********************

B.C. to appeal decision over control of Trans Mountain pipeline oil to Canada's top court
'We believe we have the right and authority … to regulate harmful substances through B.C.,' AG David Eby says

"There's always been a tug and pull in our federation between the supremacy of federal jurisdiction versus that of provincial jurisdiction. And when comes to the environment, this is an untested area," he said.

Environmental charity Ecojustice, which was an intervener in the case, also expressed disappointment in the ruling.

…...

"The issue at the heart of this case goes far beyond a single pipeline project. What was at stake is the B.C. government's ability to step in and enact laws that will better protect communities and the environment when federal measures fall short." said Ecojustic lawyer Kegan Pepper-Smith.

"The Supreme Court of Canada has overturned unanimous decisions by the B.C. Court of Appeal in the past," he said. "For reference questions like this, provinces have the right to appeal."

According to Section 36 of the Supreme Court Act, the appeal is automatic and does not require leave.

When asked about the financial price tag of the appeal, Eby said it would be a "fraction of a fraction of the cost of a catastrophic diluted bitumen spill."

**********************
Greencrow says:  When I was a young person in my 20's I worked as an administrative assistant at the University of Western Ontario Faculty of Law.  Back in the heady days of the late '60's and early '70's, The Josephine Niblett Faculty of Law, or "The Niblett" as it was affectionately referred to, was a catalyst of social upheavals of the time. The drug revolution [LSD and marijuana], the anti war movement [against the Viet Nam War] and not least was the "environmental movement".  The first time I ever heard the words "ecology" and "environment", they were spoken to me by a twenty-eight year old law professor.  He had done his masters in Berkley and came to the school all decked out in bell-bottom jeans, granny glasses and long hair and beard.  Those were heady days indeed.

Another movement that was shaking society at the time was the emergence of "aboriginal law".  We had several First Nations law students attending the school.  They were given special permission to take the courses --without having acquired the necessary academic credentials as the other students.  This was an early effort to promote inclusion in the legal arena.

Anyhooo.  One of the biggest legal decisions that was on everybody's mind was the Delgamuukw decision.  Although this decision was not handed down until 1997, it was beginning to wend its way through the court system in the late '60's and early '70's.  Everyone was saying that this decision would give First Nations constitutional rights that would change Canada forever.  Please read the following summation of the Delgamuukw Decision and I will have more comments to follow: 


**********************

Delgamuukw Decision of the Supreme Court of Canada, 1997

“The Delgamuukw case (1997) concerned the definition, the content and the extent of aboriginal title. The Supreme Court observed that aboriginal title constituted an ancestral right protected by Section 35(1) of the Constitution Act, 1982. Aboriginal title is a right relating to land sui generis, held communally and distinct from other ancestral rights. Aboriginal title is, therefore, in substance, a right to territory and encompasses exclusive use and occupation. The native people concerned must tender evidence of the existence of aboriginal title in respect of the following requirements: “(i) they must have occupied the territory before the declaration of sovereignty; (ii) if present occupation is invoked as evidence of occupation before sovereignty, there must be a continuity between present occupation and occupation before the declaration of sovereignty; (iii) at the time of declaration of sovereignty, this occupation must have been exclusive.” It is not necessary to prove a perfect continuity; the demonstration of a substantial maintenance of the bond between the people concerned and the territory is sufficient. In this respect the Supreme Court held that oral evidence could be admitted as proof. The court also ruled that aboriginal lands could not be used in a manner that was inconsistent with aboriginal title: if aboriginals wished to use the lands in ways that aboriginal title did not permit, then the lands must be surrendered. Aboriginal title cannot be transferred to anyone other than the Crown.”

….and from the Canadian Encyclopedia

The Delgamuukw case (1997) (also known as Delgamuukw v. British Columbia) concerned the definition, the content and the extent of Aboriginal title (i.e., ownership of traditional lands). The Supreme Court of Canada observed that Aboriginal title constituted an ancestral right protected by section 35(1) of the Constitution Act, 1982. Influenced by the Calder case (1973), the ruling in the Delgamuukw case had an impact on other court cases about Aboriginal rights and title, including in the Tsilhqot’in case (2014). 

Supreme Court of Canada Decision


Following an abandoned attempt at treaty negotiations with the province of British Columbia, the claimants decided to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, which heard their case on 16 and 17 June 1997. Six months later, on 11 December 1997, the court’s ruling addressed a number of issues, including the extinguishment of Aboriginal title, the use of oral history in testimony and the content and extent of Aboriginal title.

The court found that the provincial government had no right to extinguish the Indigenous peoples’ rights to their ancestral territories. Reaffirming the decision in the Van der Peet case (1996), the court deemed that oral history is an important type of evidence that courts must treat as equal to other types of evidence.

The court also clarified the content and definition of Aboriginal title, as previously explored in the Calder case (1973). It defined Aboriginal title as Indigenous peoples’ exclusive right to the land, and affirmed that Aboriginal title is recognized as an “existing aboriginal right” in section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982.

However, the court also acknowledged some limitations with Aboriginal title. Traditional lands cannot be used in a manner that is “irreconcilable with the nature of the claimants’ attachment to those lands.” For example, a nation with ancestral claims to fishing rights may not use the waters in a way that would destroy its value for fishing. If Indigenous people wished to use the lands in ways that Aboriginal title did not permit, then the lands must be surrendered. Aboriginal title cannot be transferred to anyone other than the Crown.

In order to clarify how Indigenous nations must demonstrate Aboriginal title, the court created a test based on three key points: sufficient, continuous and exclusive evidence of territorial occupation.

Delgamuukw Test: Demonstrating Aboriginal Title

According to the Delgamuukw ruling, Indigenous people seeking to prove their title to ancestral territories must provide evidence of the existence of Aboriginal title in respect of the following requirements:
The Indigenous nation must have occupied the territory before the declaration of sovereignty. This means that the Indigenous nation must have demonstrated to other First Nations and to Europeans that it clearly used and occupied the land. This is different than the ruling in the Van der Peet case (1996), which established that Indigenous peoples need to prove that their traditional rights were integral to their culture when Europeans arrived. In the Delgamuukw test, it is sufficient to say that occupied land was integral to their culture at the time of contact.

If present occupation is invoked as evidence of occupation before sovereignty, there must be a continuity between present occupation and occupation before the declaration of sovereignty. In other words, there must be evidence of a continuous ownership of the land. However, it is not necessary to prove a perfect continuity; the demonstration of a substantial maintenance of the bond between the people and the territory is sufficient. In this respect, the Supreme Court held that oral evidence could be admitted as proof.

At the time of declaration of sovereignty, this occupation must have been exclusive. This means that the land had to have been the exclusive territory of an Indigenous nation, although they could have shared it with another Indigenous nation.

Influence and Impact

The Delgamuukw case is an important one in Canadian law because it provides information about the definition and content of Aboriginal title. The ruling also clarified the government’s duty to consult with Indigenous peoples, and affirmed the legal validity of oral history. After the case, other First Nations, most notably the Tsilhqot’in people in 2014, used the Delgamuukw decision in their own land claims cases.

Despite the importance of the case, treaty negotiations between the two nations, the province and the federal government continue. Various companies operate in their traditional territories without permission, and there is division within the community over participation in large energy projects, such as the LNG pipeline that is planned to run through traditional lands. In December 2018, Wet’suwet’en people prevented some Coastal GasLink representatives (whose pipeline is supposed to transport natural gas to the scheduled LNG facility) from passing through Indigenous territory (see Pipelines in Canada). The RCMP arrested 14 people associated with this incident on 7 January 2019. Three days later, Wet'suwet'en chiefs and the RCMP reached a deal to allow road access for pipeline workers. Therefore, while the Delgamuukw case raised and clarified issues relating to Aboriginal title, it did not outright resolve them.
**********************

Greencrow concludes.  British Columbians always knew that their case for control of their environment and coastline was going to end up in the Supreme Court of Canada.  Anyone with half a brain would have figured that out.  IMO, British Columbia has an extremely solid case in the Supreme Court of Canada.  The Delgamuukw precedent is very clear on aboriginal rights being embedded in the Canadian Constitution.

The irony [there are many ironies in this case] is, that for le Dauphin to get his Transmountain Pipeline through British Columbian First Nations territories...and for him to get his 7X heavier oil traffic tankers plying the coastal waters of BC...he will have to trash The Constitution Act of 1982...the legacy of his father, Trudeau Sr.

Good luck with that one.

Indigenous pipeline protester interrupts Trudeau speech. ‘You have no right to do that to us’

Indigenous Protestor Interrupts
Prime Minister Trudeau in Vancouver
over Pipelines Debate



Will George of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation in North Vancouver stood up at a $250-a-plate fundraiser and called Trudeau a liar and a weak leader

VANCOUVER — An Indigenous protester opposed to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion interrupted a speech by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at a Liberal fundraiser on Wednesday.

Will George of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation in North Vancouver stood up and called Trudeau a liar and a weak leader...."
…..

“What do you tell your children?” George asked. “I honour my ancestors, my children, by protecting my lands and waters. You threaten our lands and waters. How dare you bring that through our waters? Those are our spiritual highways. You have no right to do that to us.

*********************
Greencrow says:  No matter what the pro-pipeline people say...how they argue for the environmentally destructive shale, fracking product--oil--be sent via pipelines to the coast...it is the oil tankers that will kill the BC environment.  All that tanker traffic will finish off the few orcas that still swim in coastal waters, the salmon and other fish.  Our coasts, once burgeoning with life when I first started to sail around the coast 42 years ago, are already almost dead.

Why do British Columbians have to pay the price for a fuel that everyone admits has seen its day?  It's like having your only son be the last soldier to die in a losing war.

The Coming of the Hundredth Monkey Messiah--Man's Search for 9/11 Truth

The Hundredth Monkey Effect
as it Relates to 9/11


As we approach the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 False Flag Atrocity, with no sign of justice in sight...many Truthers [members of 23% of humanity capable of critical thinking] keep hoping for a miracle.  Something that will lift the onerous burden of horrific knowledge off our backs. Responsibility for all the deaths that occurred on that day plus the millions of people who died in the Wars for Israel predicated on that lie ever since.  This crushing burden [with its attendant sorrow, guilt, frustration and pent up rage] is borne solely by humanity's critical thinkers.

Critical thinkers are hoping that soon and at long last there will be a coming of the Hundredth Monkey Messiah to lift humanity out of 9/11 intellectual darkness and deception.  Wikipedia describes the psychological phenomenon known as the hundredth monkey effect as follows:

The hundredth monkey effect is a hypothetical phenomenon in which a new behaviour or idea is claimed to spread rapidly by unexplained means from one group to all related groups once a critical number of members of one group exhibit the new behaviour or acknowledge the new idea. 

Perhaps if we keep talking about 9/11, spreading the word on our blogs and in scary conversations with our friends and family. Scary, because almost every time we try...we get verbally bludgeoned by their ignorant rage--at the sheer audacity of us to think differently than the majority...to dismiss the "Conventional Wisdom" of the "Official Story".

But, perhaps if the Hundredth Monkey Messiah comes, miraculously, to accept the scientific evidence that's lying hidden in plain sight, the psychic barrier placed around the crime by the Ziofascist perpz will thus be breached...and all of humanity will finally wake up!  Hallelujah!!! 

We have reason to hope.  Thanks to the FOI requests submitted by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth's in support of their lawsuit that's wending its way through the New York Court System, some newly released FBI documents have shed light on apparent Mossad foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks.

Details of this new evidence has been posted on several alternative blogs such as Natural News, Aletho News and Xymphora.  I am going to reprint a snippet from Xymphora that is chock-a-block full of mind blowing information.  I will have more thoughts to follow:


******************

"Newly Released FBI Docs Shed Light on Apparent Mossad Foreknowledge of 9/11 Attacks" (Webb) (my emphasis in red):
"If images 5 and 7 were indeed taken the day prior to the attack, the question then becomes why the FBI officially concluded that the arrested Israelis had no prior knowledge of the attacks? One report from ABC News dated June 2002 suggests that the Bush administration intervened in the investigation. That report states that “Israeli and U.S. government officials worked out a deal — and after 71 days, the five Israelis were taken out of jail, put on a plane, and deported back home [to Israel].” If the Bush administration had cut a deal with Israel’s government to cover up the incident, it certainly would not have been the first time a U.S. presidential administration had done so on Israel’s behalf.
Further evidence that higher-ups in the administration intervened is the fact that then-Attorney General John Ashcroft personally signed off on the detainees’ release. Upon his entering the private sector as a lobbyist and consultant in 2005, the Israeli government became one of Ashcroft’s first clients.
A cover-up certainly seems to have happened to some extent, between the destruction of records of the investigation and the fact that official conclusions of the investigation do not add up. In the latter case, the FBI  — in a file dated September 24, 2001– officially stated that they “determined that none of the Israelis were actively engaged in clandestine intelligence activities in the United States.” However, that conclusion was directly contradicted by U.S. officials a year later and by the fact that Israel’s own government subsequently acknowledged that the five Israelis had indeed been involved in “clandestine intelligence activities in the United States.”
In addition, the new FOIA release of the photos suggests that another FBI conclusion — that “none of the pictures developed from the film found inside the 35-mm camera depicted the twin towers prior to the attack” — was inaccurate. This may explain why the images released via the recent FOIA request were heavily edited leaving details in the background greatly obscured, making it impossible to determine whether the photos were taken prior to or during the attacks based solely on the state of the towers."
and:
"In addition to the strange nature of some of the Israelis’ possessions in the van and on their person, the company that employed them — Urban Moving Systems — was of special interest to the FBI, which concluded that the company was likely a “fraudulent operation.” Upon a search of the company’s premises, the FBI noted that “little evidence of a legitimate business operation was found.” The FBI report also noted that there were an “unusually large number of computers relative to the number of employees for such a fairly small business” and that “further investigation identified several pseudo-names or aliases associated with Urban Moving Systems and its operations.”
The FBI presence at the Urban Moving Systems search site drew the attention of the local media and was later reported on both television and in the local press. A former Urban Moving Systems employee later contacted the Newark Division with information indicating that he had quit his employment with Urban Moving Systems as a result of the high amount of anti-American sentiment present among Urban’s employees. The former employee stated that an Israeli employee of Urban had even once remarked, “Give us twenty years and we’ll take over your media and destroy your country” (page 37 of and:
"The company’s owner — Dominik Otto Suter, an Israeli citizen — had fled to Israel on September 14, 2001, two days after he had been questioned by the FBI. The FBI told ABC News that “Urban Moving may have been providing cover for an Israeli intelligence operation.” Surprisingly, since at least 2016, Suter has been living in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he works for a contractor for major tech companies like Google and Microsoft. According to the public records database Intelius, in 2006 and 2007 Suter also worked for a telecommunications company — Granite Telecommunications — that works for the U.S. military and several other U.S. government agencies.
In addition to Urban Moving Systems, another moving company, Classic International Movers, became of interest in connection with the investigation into the “Dancing Israelis,” which led to the arrest and detention of four Israeli nationals who worked for this separate moving company. The FBI’s Miami Division had alerted the Newark Division that Classic International Movers was believed to have been used by one of the 19 alleged 9/11 hijackers before the attack, and one of the “Dancing Israelis” had the number for Classic International Movers written in a notebook that was seized at the time of his arrest. The report further states that one of the Israelis of Classic International Movers who was arrested “was visibly disturbed by the Agents’ questioning regarding his personal email account.”"
There has never been any doubt that the Israelis had foreknowledge of the attacks. More interesting is the amount of work done by American officials to cover this up. Note also that an extensive Israeli spying network against the US government was rounded up in the aftermath of 9/11, presumably by accident.the FBI report)."..." 


******************


Greencrow says:  Two more recent happenstances also point to the possibility that man may soon be visited by the Hundredth Monkey Messiah.  

The first...Conventional Wisdom...the decrepit prop holding up the 9/11 official myth, is being seriously challenged by....wait for it....a Jeopardy champion.  Please read the following snippet about James Holzhauer, the greatest Jeopardy Champion in the 35 year history of the game show...and the way he has "gamed" the show by rejecting Conventional wisdom: 

James Holzhauer has broken all the rules
and all the previous Jeopardy! records




******************




But what if conventional wisdom is wrong? And how often is it wrong?
According to Washington Post columnist Robert Samuelson, the answer is “almost always.”
Indeed, Samuelson wrote an important if largely overlooked book on this very subject in 2001. The book’s title:  Untruth: How The Conventional Wisdom Is (Almost Always) Wrong.
Samuelson’s thesis is that people or organizations with an “agenda” often create problems or a “crisis” that are exaggerated or not problems at all. The “solutions” policy makers give us typically make things worse.
One can take his premise and run with it … and it holds. A few conventional wisdom examples:
  • To protect our freedoms and save lives, America must invade, occupy or attack nation after nation, countries which pose great threats to our country and/or our freedoms.
  • Man-made climate change is the greatest threat to our planet and its inhabitants and can and must be reversed at all costs.
  • Donald Trump will never be elected president of the United States.
  • Donald Trump will drain the swamp.
    • Russia “hacked” an election.
    • There’s only one way to play “Jeopardy!”
    Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Or, if not all wrong, at least not all sacrosanct.
    Examples where conventional wisdom is often wrong could also be easily identified in the fields of science, health, economics and education. The point: if conventional wisdom really is “almost always wrong,” someone (or a lot of someones) need to expose this.
    In the grand scheme of things, disproving the postulate that there’s only one way to play “Jeopardy!” might not seem like a big deal.  It could be, however, if a rare “eureka!” moment opened the floodgates of independent thought [or a Hundredth Monkey moment].


******************

Greencrow says:  If you read the entire article about Holzhauer at the Silver Doctors link, you'll note that since breaking all the records in a record amount of time and winning close to 2 million dollars so far, Holzhauer has also been subjected to a lot of blowback by the Conventional Wisdom proponents.  All kinds of negative aspersions have been cast his way...just like the 9/11 Truthers have had to endure for 18+ years!

The Second happenstance that may be a harbinger for the coming of the Hundredth Monkey Messiah is the fact that a "Truther" will be running in the next Canadian Federal Election this coming fall.  His nomination papers have been signed by Maxime Bernier, Leader of the People's party of Canada.  Please read the CBC news report below and I will have final thoughts in comments to follow:



People's Party of Canada Leader Maxime Bernier is the vehicle for change, according to the party's newest candidate, Ken Pereira. (Graham Hughes/Canadian Press)


Ken Pereira, union whistleblower turned conspiracy theorist, joins forces with Maxime Bernier

Charbonneau Commission's star witness now co-hosts a YouTube show about conspiracies

Former union leader Ken Pereira, a conspiracy theorist, will run in the federal election for the People's Party of Canada, the new political party led by Maxime Bernier.
Speaking with La Presse Canadienne, Pereira touted Bernier's "courage" while describing him as "a career politician who took a chance with a new vision by leaving the Conservatives."
After serving as an MP for Beauce since 2006, Bernier ran for leadership of the Conservative Party in 2017. After placing second, he resigned and started his own party saying he had conflicting opinions with the candidate who beat him — Andrew Scheer. 
Pereira will run in the riding of Portneuf–Jacques-Cartier, which covers the area northwest of Quebec City, Bernier confirmed to Radio-Canada on Tuesday. The riding is currently held by the Conservatives.
On a YouTube channel he co-hosts, Pereira speaks about a purported international ring of pedophiles that performs occult rituals. He also claims the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States were a false flag operation to justify new wars.
In a video published earlier this year, he says that "pedophilia is part of the daily life" of politicians, celebrities and other powerful people around the world.
He said that "Pizzagate," the baseless claim that a pizzeria in Washington, D.C., was part of a pedophile ring that implicated the Clintons, is used by the media to discredit this larger conspiracy theory.
Pereira's YouTube channel co-host is André Pitre, a little-known internet personality with close ties to the far-right group La Meute.
Pereira, citing his shared values with the People's Party, told La Presse Canadienne he wants to defend "the interest of Quebecers and Canadians, and in particular the middle class," who he said has been abandoned for years.
"If you do not send your children to private school, or your friends or family to a private clinic, you've never been well served," he said. Bernier's party supports a larger role for the private sector in the health-care system.
Pereira is an active Twitter user, where he often weighs in on international issues and is a frequent critic of Justin Trudeau and Barack Obama.
He also shares articles that claim investigations into the administration of President Donald Trump are the work of a "deep state," the unfounded belief that a network of unelected officials secretly wields power in Washington.

More protection for whistleblowers

Pereira told La Presse Canadienne that one of his motivations for entering politics is working to protect whistleblowers.
In 2013, he made headlines when he testified at the Charbonneau Commission, a public inquiry into corruption in Quebec's construction industry.
Pereira was one of the key witnesses at the inquiry. He exposed that Jocelyn Dupuis, who headed the construction arm of the Quebec Federation of Labour, FTQ-Construction, was defrauding the union with inflated expense reports.
His testimony also helped reveal links between the union and organized crime."



******************

Greencrow Concludes:  If Candidate Pereira manages to survive the onslaught of ridicule, bullying and probable threats that will surely come his way in the run-up to the Fall election, he will certainly break the Conventional Wisdom chains of bondage by participating in debates that are part of the electoral process...and answering questions from the press about his beliefs.  As you can see from the above CBC report...we already have a glimmer of the strategy the cover-up press will use on Pereira.  They will totally ignore his beliefs on 9/11 truth and attack him on pedophilia.

One outcome of this long wait for the coming of the Hundredth Monkey Messiah...critical thinkers have gained an awareness of what the people in the Old Testament must have endured waiting for their Messiah.  Their Messiah was the Messiah of Love while ours is the Messiah of the Hundredth Monkey...the final acceptance by humanity of truth and logic...as well as the rule of law.
