Supreme Court Rules on Clyde River Appeal

The Supreme Court of Canada has issued its decisions in the Clyde River Appeal.

The Inuvialuit Regional Corporation welcomed the decision of the Court to void the permit of the National Energy Board allowing seismic testing in Baffin Bay and the Davis Straight.

Duane Smith, chair and CEO of the IRC said the Corporation alongside fellow Inuit land claim organization advocated for maintaining the integrity of treaty rights.

“This is a crucial ruling that makes clear the requirement to assess the specific impacts of a project on the hard won-treaty rights of Indigenous Peoples.”

The Court ultimately decided against the Energy Board’s permit because there wasn’t a mutual understanding regarding the impact on treaty rights.
