Smith v. Alliance case heard by Supreme Court of Canada

The Supreme Court of Canada heard an appeal by Vernon Smith yesterday against a decision of the Federal Court of Appeal related to pipeline landowner compensation for damages.  The Federal Court of Appeal had overturned an arbitration decision that awarded Smith his unpaid costs of a court case that had been started and lost by Alliance Pipelines.  According to the Supreme Court's website, a decision in the case is under reserve or has been made but with reasons to follow.  My previous posts on this case are at:
