The commissioner of Alberta's public inquiry into alleged foreign-funded attacks on the oil industry has pushed back against a legal challenge to suspend his work, arguing an environmental law charity can't prove it will be harmed by his inquiry's findings.

In an Aug. 27 legal brief, commissioner Steve Allan also says he still has not yet determined the process under which the organizations he is scrutinizing will respond to his investigation, even as the Oct. 30 deadline for his final report looms.

In July, Ecojustice sought an injunction that would halt Allan's work until the court rules on an earlier legal challenge by the charity.
