Referendum Update

Hello Everyone,

The CBA has withdrawn as an Intervenor in the SCC case of Chevron v. Yaiguaje.

“CBA’s Intervention Policy requires the Legislation and Law Reform Committee sanction the factum before it can be filed with the Court.  In this case, the Committee concluded that while the factum was well-drafted and of a high standard of quality, it did not meet the specific requirements of CBA’s Intervention Policy. Consequently, under the terms of the Intervention Policy, the CBA came to the conclusion that without the certification of the factum, the Intervention could not move forward and would be withdrawn.”

The LSS is currently holding a referendum on whether to send a letter opposing intervention in the case.

“Are you in favour of the UVic LSS Executive, on behalf of undergraduate law students at the University of Victoria, writing and submitting to the Canadian Bar Association a letter reflecting points which oppose its intervention in the Chevron Canada, et al. v. Yalguaje, et al. case before the Supreme Court of Canada?”

Many students are curious whether the referendum will still be voted on. The answer is yes. Should the referendum pass, a letter will still be sent, opposing the intervention just the same. The LSS Executive took a position opposing the process taken by the CBA before the L&LRC refused to sanction the factum.

If you have any questions, please let us know at lss@uvic.ca

  • Panel discussion on the CBA's intervention at the SCC in the Chevron case (relates to LSS referendum)
    Starts: 12:00 pm
    Ends: October 15, 2014 - 1:00 pm
    Location: Room 157
    Description: The UVic Environmental Law Club, International Human Rights Law Association, Indigenous Law Club, Indigenous Law Students Association and Business Law Association are jointly hosting a panel discussion on the CBA's decision to intervene at the Supreme Court of Canada in Chevron Corporation, et al. v. Yalguaje, et al. The case involves a $9.51 billion judgment by an Ecuadorian court against Chevron Corp., in favour of Ecuadorian Indigenous people, due to environmental devastation and infringements on their rights committed by Texaco (since acquired by Chevron Corp). As Chevron Corp. does not have assets in Ecuador, the plaintiffs are attempting to collect on the judgment from Chevron Canada, a subsidiary of Chevron Corp. The CBA is intervening on two narrow principles of corporate law, effectively in favour of Chevron Canada and against the Indigenous plaintiffs.

    This has caused much controversy among CBA members, due to the apparent departure from CBA policy and process and politically-charged nature of the case, so we have diverse perspectives represented on the panel:

    -Drew Mildon, Managing Partner at Woodward & Company, former Chair of BC CBA Aboriginal Law Section - Vancouver Island, current Member at Large of CBA Aboriginal Law Section, BC CBA Council Representative for Victoria County

    -Kerry Simmons, Q.C., Cook Roberts LLP, former President of CBABC, current member of Civil Litigation section

    -Krystle Gill, Hart Legal, Executive Member of CBABC and Equality & Diversity Committee Chair

    -Professor Andrew Newcombe, University of Victoria Faculty of Law, expert in International Law and Arbitration

    Facebook event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1489129024698431/

    *Please note: there will be a referendum (via webvote) as to whether the LSS will send a letter of opposition to the CBA on this issue. It will be open from Wed Oct 15 - Wed Oct 22. Please come to this panel with any questions you may have prior to voting!
