Harlequin Ducks Dismissed by Federal Court in Cheviot Case

October 1, 2005

Wild Lands Advocate article, October 2005, by David Samson.

Harlequin ducks have effectively been served with their eviction notice for their residence on the McLeod River. The Federal Court, on August 17, 2005, dismissed a challenge to the approval of the Cheviot coal mine, which had been filed by a coalition of environmental groups representing wildlife and concerned members of the Alberta public.
