Court Rule Ottawa Did Not Consult Dene - Pipeline Stops

EDMONTON (CP) - The future of hearings into a $7-billion natural gas pipeline down the Mackenzie Valley has been thrown into doubt after a Federal Court judge ruled an aboriginal group on the southern end of the proposed route had been unfairly shut out of the regulatory process.

Justice Michael Phelan ruled that Ottawa failed to consult with the Dene Tha' from the beginning of the process. He ordered hearings on any aspect of the project affecting Dene Tha' lands in northern Alberta to cease.

That means the entire process is dead until the Dene Tha's concerns are met, said their lawyer, Robert Freedman.
