According to a brief post on social media site Twitter, blogger and failed political candidate Brad Cabana has lost his legal bid to halt the Muskrat Falls hydroelectric project.
“(Justice Gillian) Butler has refused an injunction on Muskrat Falls. Appeal to follow, to the Supreme Court of Canada if necessary,” Cabana posted.
He was arguing that the government’s decision to develop a hydroelectric dam at Muskrat Falls violate his constitutional rights on various grounds.
The Telegram has not seen a copy of the decision by Butler.
Cabana ran for both the Progressive Conservative party and Liberal party leaderships in 2011, and eventually ran as a candidate for the Liberals in the 2011 election — he garnered 344 votes and failed to win the seat against Progressive Conservative Ross Wiseman.
He did not have a lawyer and was representing himself in court.
