Kegan Pepper-Smith, a lawyer with non-profit Ecojustice, which delivered arguments in support of B.C.'s rules in the case, said the court should enshrine every level of government’s duty to enact legislation that protects the environment.

“There is a bigger picture here, the science is telling us two things: First, we’re causing a climate breakdown and, second, the world is facing an ecological crisis and both of these issues are at play in this case,” he said.

I love it when people with no ide what they're talking about present one concept as two different ones.

And: B.C. can't impose environmental laws that could kill Trans Mountain pipeline, court rules

They're taking it to the Supreme Court, of course.
