First Nation Cheers Court Ruling On Environment And Consultation

First Nation Cheers Court Ruling On Environment And Consultation – http://huff.to/1x5Bj6P

“The government was offloading environmental oversight to the provinces”-

Actually due to a constitutional defect the provinces have the primary role in the environment through separation of powers.

However, they have the same duty to consult with First Nations.

This was an issue in the 80s, the only good thing about the Tories then and the only good thing about Lucien Bouchard ever was the environmental focus, but that was neutered for the feds through separation of powers and they weren’t able to get anything done.
