January 29, 2018 – YYC Cares scores a major victory for wetlands and the the environment.  We would like to thank all of those that worked so hard to achieve this win including our intervenors, expert witnesses and our lawyers at Wilson Laycraft.

In the decision Minister Shannon Phillips states, “I want to thank the Appellants for bringing these appeals forward. These appeals have highlighted the importance of strictly applying the avoid, mitigate, and compensate hierarchy, particular for wetlands in urban areas. The appeals have made it clear that we need to do a better job in designing and approving roadways, particularly where they have been over-designed and have disproportionate impacts on wetlands. While I understand the Appellants would have wanted to see more significant changes for this project, I am hopeful they can be satisfied that they have set the stage for better projects from this point forward”.
