Environmentalists lose $500M mining lawsuit

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I reported on a ruling by the Federal Court of Canada that found the Canadian and Nova Scotia governments broke the law by blocking Bilcon, an American mining company, from opening a stone quarry in Nova Scotia.

Bilcon was originally invited by Nova Scotia politicians to build the mine, but the invitation was a bait and switch. The rules for having their mine approved were changed.

Now Bilcon wants up to $500 million to compensate for lost profits and costs associated with canceling the project.

Bilcon's mine was rejected by left-wing environmentalists using the same "social license" nonsense we're currently hearing from Trudeau and Notley.

Will their irresponsible environmental policies put Canadians on the hook for another multi-million dollar lawsuit?

Keith Barnes got that right. I would have suggested he perform Fellatio for nickels to make that money , but he would probably enjoy that.

Trudeau should pay this $500m out of his own pocket, he makes enough money from Islam, he wouldn’t miss it. Why should we, the Tax Payers, pay for his screw up’s.
