Media Advisory - January 25th Injunction Against Transcanada Pipelines Put Off: Summary Judgement To Be Sought In Next Few Months

TORONTO, Jan. 17, 2017 /CNW/ - The injunction motion brought by Aroland First Nation and Ginoogaming First Nation against TransCanada Pipelines to prevent its imminent integrity digs and other operations and maintenance work in Northwestern Ontario will no longer be heard on January 25th, 2017.

Instead, the First Nations will, over the next few months, pursue a motion in the Ontario Superior Court asking the Court determine whether the Duty to Consult and Accommodate is owed in these circumstances – for new work causing physical impacts on an existing pipeline project which itself had been approved before the Duty to Consult and Accommodate was recognized by Canadian law.
