Canadian court allows new challenges to Trans Mountain oil pipeline expansion

Sept 4 (Reuters) - Canada’s Federal Court of Appeal on Wednesday agreed to hear six challenges to the Canadian government’s earlier approval of an expansion of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline, adding to delays ahead of an October election.

The court said, in a ruling posted on its website, that the six challenges relate to the adequacy of the government’s consultations with indigenous groups, and that they must proceed on strict, short deadlines. (Reporting by Rod Nickel in Winnipeg, Editing by Rosalba O’Brien)
