NunatuKavut Council willing to participate in hearings

The NunatuKavut Community Council may have lost a court injunction to suspend Nalcor’s Lower Churchill hearings, but it is still willing to participate in the process. The council, which represents the Métis Nation, filed a Supreme Court injunction earlier this month against the energy corporation, claiming the council was not properly consulted during the environmental assessment. The judge ruled, however, that the council failed to prove its native rights would be undermined if the public hearings continued. Alas, the NunatuKavut Community Council is encouraging its members to participate in the hearings and learn about the project’s components and layout, construction, operation and maintenance. This decision could be a sign the council is willing to continue with the overall process. The session takes place at the Labrador Friendship Centre in Happy Valley-Goose Bay tonight at 7:30.
