The B.C. government filed a reference case to the province’s highest court to prove their jurisdiction to protect local people from diluted bitumen. And they want to hear from you (yes, you!) about oil spill response.

Your hosts Lisa and Sophie are joined by two very special guests — West Coast Environmental Law’s Stephanie Hewson, and former Trans Mountain engineer Romilly Cavanaugh — to give you the information you need to submit your comment.

(Bonus: Lisa has great fun proving that Sophie doesn’t know what’s happening in the world outside of the Kinder Morgan fight.)

This episode was recorded on Coast Salish territory.
