'Game-changer' court ruling gives federal government right to protect Western chorus frog .
A Federal Court judge has ruled the federal Environment Ministry has the right to intervene in private development projects in the interest of protecting biodiversity — in this case, the Western chorus frog. Two years after the federal government put an emergency protective order on the frog and halted work on a development site in La Prairie, Justice René LeBlanc has ruled that the government was within its right to do so. Environmental groups had been fighting for a protection order since 2013 in an effort to stop the construction of a housing development that threatened the frog population in the area.
