On July 2nd 2004, the Court of Queen's Bench found Alberta Environment's decision to approve the real estate and ski terrain development at CMR without an EIA "patently unreasonable", and ordered the department to reconsider its decision in accordance with the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act.

After coming through a year of controversy over public
access to grazing leases for recreation, the government
