A group of environmentalists is hoping Canada's highest court will declare the National Energy Board in the wrong over questions of free speech. The group is challenging how the regulatory body makes decisions over energy projects like pipelines. Prominent environmental activist Tzeporah Berman says she's worked on environmental policy for two decades and believed the government would encourage public participation in the process, but now feels nothing could be further from the truth. (The board is currently reviewing a number of pipeline projects that have generated controversy, including the Trans Mountain expansion in B-C that has triggered environmental protests.)
