Supreme Court hears appeals on Canada's carbon pricing law

On September 22 and 23, the Supreme Court of Canada heard appeals in three separate cases regarding the consitutionality of the federal government's carbon pricing system. Appeals courts in Saskatchewan and Ontario had previously upheld the law, while the Alberta Court of Appeal ruled that the law was unconstitutional.

Lawyers from AEN member group Ecojustice representing the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation and the David Suzuki Foundation appeared before the court as interveners in these important hearings.
