New Environmental Assessment of Southern Pacific
An Alberta judge overturned the directive of the Alberta Environmental agency that excluded representation from an environmental group during the assessemnt opf Southern Pacific McKay project. The consequences are still unfolding. A spokesperson for the Environmental agency said "As a result of the ruling we are preparing a new assessment for this [Southern Pacific] project...."
I doubt this could stop Southern Pacific's current operations, but one can never be sure. Most certainly, it will affect Phase 2.
