There is precious little in this 274 page court ruling that finds any deficiencies regarding spills of diluted bitumen.

The specific environmental concerns hinge on noise pollution negatively impacting the Southern Resident Killer Whales and Sec 79(2) of the Species at Risk Act
Actually, the specific concerns are that the Species at Risk Act was not included in the report that informed the Governor in Council’s decision.

The Court simply says Cabinet needed information that it didn’t have while making its decision, so the decision must be remade.
The Court makes no finding as to whether the decision is wrong — only that cabinet was not in possession of all the information it needed when it made the call.

That’s an important distinction.
