Transmountain Pipeline ULC v. Mivasair, 2018 BCSC 947

Alongside her colleague, Alex Ejsmont, Andi MacKay represented Elizabeth May, a member of parliament and leader of the Green Party of Canada, in criminal contempt charges relating to an anti-pipeline protest. Ms. May entered a guilty plea to the charges and we were tasked with making submissions that emphasized her respect for the law as well as the important role of non-violent civil disobedience in democratic society. Ms. May came to rely on our sound legal advice as well as our skill and discretion in dealing with the media.
