5. Moved by Barry, seconded by Joseph, that, in the event that the Divisional Court decides that the Alliance is liable for costs stemming from the Judicial Review application, and provided the Ecojustice Environmental Law Clinic so advises, the Alliance instructs the Clinic to apply to the Ontario Court of Appeal for leave to appeal that decision.
