The federal government failed to live up to its responsibility to protect B.C.'s endangered southern resident orcas when cabinet approved the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, according to a new court action filed by environmental groups.
Ecojustice has filed a motion to the Federal Court of Appeal on behalf of Raincoast Conservation Foundation and the Living Oceans Society asking for leave to launch a judicial review of cabinet's decision.
"Cabinet can not justify approving a project that will lead to the extinction of a critically endangered population- legally or morally", she says in a press release."This iconic population simply can not handle increased, unmitigated threats from the Trans Mountain expansion".
This is the second time lawyers from Ecojustice have challenged the pipeline in court.

The latter was highlighted when Ottawa updated its recovery strategy for the species in December.
If the government has failed to meet requirements outlined in the Species at Risk Act, then the conservationists believe the court can once again set aside the project's approval, Venton said.
