Court Case Applicants

Thank you to wildlife biologist Bob Bancroft and local environmental group Eastern Shore Forest Watch Association for taking this case to court on behalf of concerned Nova Scotians.

Bob Bancroft, Eastern Shore Forest Watch Association, and lawyer Jamie Simpson will be heading to the Nova Scotia Court of Appeals in October 2022, in hopes that their case will be the first in Canada to usher in a new age in environmental law in Canada.

“The underlying question in this appeal is whether Nova Scotians ought to be informed before the government makes decisions affecting the fate of ecologically important lands, especially those lands that have been identified as protected. We believe the answer is yes and that the courts play an inherent role in promoting fair government decision-making.”
