Millbrook First Nation – November 14, 2016
Sipeknekatik made an application for a Judicial Review arguing that the Crown failed in their duty to adequately consult them before Alton Gas undertook their work on the Shubenacadie River in 2015. This matter is set for a hearing on Monday November 14th, 2016 and Tuesday November 15th, 2016.
Recently, Chief Robert Gloade, of Millbrook First Nation, whose community is also affected by the Alton Gas project, reviewed the brief submitted by Alex Cameron, Legal Counsel for the Crown on this matter. What he read in the submissions of Mr. Cameron troubled him. Not only did Mr. Cameron’s argument deny Treaty Rights of the Mi’kmaw,( which are not in issue in the matter before the court) he argued that the Mi’kmaw are a “conquered” people and as such are owed no duty of consultation when decisions of governments may affect Mi’kmaw rights and title.View all news stories
