OTTAWA. x–18s. The federal Liberals are shopping around for a retired federal judge to help guide a renewed consultation with Indigenous communities on the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. On his way into a cabinet meeting this morning in Ottawa Prime Minister Justin Trudeau repeated that his government needs to follow through on a court ruling that has stalled the project.

TAG: The Federal Court of Appeal last month quashed the approval given to the project, saying the consultation with Indigenous communities wasn’t good enough and criticizing the lack of attention paid to the environmental impact of increased tanker traffic off the coast of British Columbia. The Liberals are still considering whether to appeal the decision, but an official says one option being closely considered is hiring a former senior judge, possibly a retired Supreme Court of Canada justice, to advise the government on what would constitute meaningful consultation with Indigenous communities to satisfy the conditions of the court.
