Court: the last resort. You opposed Alberta Environment’s decision to approve or refuse a regulated activity. Maybe there was no environmental impact assessment. Maybe an appeal to the Environmental Appeals Board was unsuccessful.
On February 25th, 2010, Adam Driedzic, Staff Counsel with the Environmental Law Centre, discussed judicial review of administrative decision-making. He covered key questions for potential litigants, including:
- How is reviewing procedural fairness different from appealing the result?
- What remedies can the court award, and what are the risks?
- Who may have standing in the courts, and when should they start proceedings?
