Update on the Keewatin Hearing at Supreme Court of Canada

May 6, 2014

By Bruce McIvor

For those of you following the Keewatin hearing at the Supreme Court of Canada, below are the respondents' written arguments. 

For the importance of this case and the written arguments of Grassy Narrows First Nation and our client, Wabauskang First Nation, please see my earlier posting.

The Supreme Court granted intervenor status to 14 intervenors from across the country, including 10 supporting Grassy Narrows and Wabauskang and four provinces supporting the respondents.

The hearing will take place next Thursday, May 15th.

Bruce McIvor is principal of First Peoples Law Corporation.
