The Court of Appeal in Nortel noted that in the lower court's decision, the CCAA judge aptly described the issues as arising "from the untidy intersection" of the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA") and the powers of the provincial Minister of the Environment ("MOE") "to make orders with respect to the remediation of real property in Ontario."
