Fort Nelson First Nation gets Nexen fracking water license overturned
September 3, 2015
The Fort Nelson First Nation, represented by Ratcliff lawyers James Tate, Nathan Hume and Michelle Bradley, has won a potentially precedent-setting decision from the B.C. Environmental Appeal Board that cancels the water licence of a natural gas fracking operation in northeast B.C.
The appeal board — in a decision that took 20 months to deliver — concluded the science behind the licence was fundamentally flawed and the province did not consult the First Nation in good faith.
