ABlawg.ca: Supreme Court's broad interpretation of Section 99(1) of the National Energy Board Act

A Masters of Laws student at the University of Calgary has written an article about the recent Supreme Court of Canada decision in Smith v. Alliance Pipelines: Supreme Court Broadly Interprets s. 99(1) of the National Energy Board Act.  He notes that the decision may be limited in application to cases where a landowner recovers 85% or better of what he was offered going into arbitration under the NEB Act.
