VANCOUVER — The Gitga’at First Nation will ask the Federal Court of Appeal to recognize the band’s aboriginal title along the proposed tanker route where ships would be carrying oil from the Northern Gateway pipeline as part of a legal fight against the proposal.

The band filed an application with the court on Monday, bringing to at least five the number of groups seeking judicial review of the federal cabinet’s decision approving the project.

“The Gitga’at put forward evidence of title to specific areas in the Douglas Channel,” said their lawyer, Michael Lee Ross.

Last month, the Supreme Court of Canada recognized the Tsilhqot’in nations’ aboriginal title to more than 1,700 square kilometres of land in the B.C. Interior. Theirs was the first such recognition in the country.

So, will they form their own coast guard? How about fish cops, a good business. Or will they as usual, expect the people of Canada to do all the paying?

If you can float a rubber dingy on it, it's a Fed responsibility.

Looks like more ammo for Harper to holler 'National Interests'

Great news if you are a white lawyer anyway. Which bunch of taxpayers is financing all the legal action? Can't be indians because they don't pay taxes.

Greenpeace and Tides Foundation are wasting their money on these lawyers.

FN land in addition to the ports and waterways are a direct Fed responsibility, Further, the Feds can deem these projects in the National Interest and force them through without the voluntary approval of the FNs.

We've bee through this Cliffy.... Your blockade is doomed.

Also, it was the regulatory body that gave Northern Gateway the approval, not the gvt... The Feds will step in and force it through when the time is right - then you can thump your chest, rail at the heavens and piss and moan.

Raging again? This is not good for your personality disorder.

Have you read up on Section 27 of the NEB act?

It'll make you and the TV Indians cry.

I find it humorous that Cliffie speaks for natives. Has anyone told him what i have had to tell numerous of my own people? Natives had no written language, nada, zero! Anybody remember when they invented the wheel? Remembrance was their only way of saving or passing along information. Many lefties seem to think the natives are smarter than rocket scientists right now but the vast majority of them are so unschooled that it is impossible. Quit telling them they excel and tell them to get educated in more than blowing smoke beating ****ing drums whilst spending working people's money! There are many natives out there that never show up at these BS blockades or whine to lawyers, i am one of them and it rips me a new *** to see the rape of a people.

Yes. They have partnerships and labour agreements with two new massive potash mines. They've partnered with trade unions for training and first dibs on dispatches. They are setting themselves up for the future. They will be part of every step of development, mining, marketing and management in SK and the BC terminals. SK FNs providing jobs for the west coast Mossbacks who refuse the future of their people.
