An injunction hearing on the Site C dam was expected to have wrapped up in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver on Wednesday.

As of press time, it was still unclear whether or not a decision was made by the court.

"It is quite possible that the court will reserve judgment (until after Wednesday), but given the nature of the relief being sought we wouldn’t expect it to take too long," said Allisun Rana, a lawyer representing the Prophet River and West Moberly First Nations.

Updates to the story will be available here on the Alaska Highway News website.

Prophet River and West Moberly are fighting dozens of permits issued by the province that have allowed the first phases of construction on Site C to go ahead.

The two bands are seeking an injunction, which would prevent the work from going ahead, over allegations that they were not properly consulted about these permits. BC Hydro has denied these allegations.
