I wonder how long Heyman can stall before presenting the substance of their case. No matter what, TransMountain will be built long before this case ever reaches the high court. 

Provincial jurisdiction on the coasts ends at the high water mark. The Feds have constitutional authority over the entire marine environment. There is no precedent for challenging this authority and it is doubtful the SCC will set one.

There are other cases still working their way through the lower court. Even if BC stood down the pipeline can`t be built until those cases are settled.
