NEW) LE­GAL COUN­SEL, NDP

Le­gal Ea­gle This 84-year-old le­gal le­gend was cherry-picked by the pro­vin­cial NDP in Au­gust to ad­vise them as they bat­tle against the ex­pan­sion of the Trans Moun­tain pipe­line. It’s a mammoth task, con­sid­er­ing the twin­ning project has al­ready re­ceived con­di­tional ap­proval from the Na­tional En­ergy Board and Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau’s cabi­net. But Berger has an im­pres­sive track record when it comes to ƒght­ing big oil: as part of the Supreme Court, the man played a huge role in the ul­ti­mate quash­ing of the Macken­zie Val­ley pipe­line dur­ing the 1970s.
