Reality check: Could Scheer fast-track pipeline challenges straight to Supreme Court? - 2019-09-20
Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer said that, if elected, his government would help build new oil pipelines by "fast-tracking" any objections right to the Supreme Court, but legal experts say the proposed plan is unclear.
"It's about fast-tracking some of the questions that have been raised by people who oppose the project," Scheer said, speaking at a campaign event in Hamilton, Ont., on Wednesday
"Fast-tracking those cases to the Supreme Court — referring those types of jurisdictional questions to the Supreme Court right away so that we can get certainty, instead of watching these court cases move slowly up and up, being appealed. We would have taken that directly to get finality on those decisions."
