The Legault government must appeal if it is ever forced by the Court of Quebec to issue an oil drilling authorization requested by Gaspé Énergies.
This is what the Parti Québécois is asking for in a case between the company and the government. Environmental organizations fear that this affair will have consequences everywhere in Quebec.
Gaspé Énergies is going to court to claim a drilling permit in Gaspé, the Galt 6 project, which the Minister of Energy and Natural Resources, Jonatan Julien, refused.
The PQ environmental spokesperson, Sylvain Gaudreault, also asks the government to review the current laws on hydrocarbons, because there are loopholes that are exploited by companies, according to him.
