The Federal Court of Appeal has overturned approval of Enbridge's Northern Gateway pipeline after finding that the federal government failed to consult with First Nations communities whose rights would have been affected by the proposed pipeline.

"Canada failed to make reasonable efforts to inform and consult. It fell well short of the mark," the ruling said. The Court ruled in favour of the eight First Nations, four environmental organizations and one union, Unifor.
