The Supreme Court is reviewing two National Energy Board decisions that could change how indigenous people are consulted before energy projects are developed on their territories. Nader Hasan, the lawyer for a group of Inuit who are challenging one of the board's rulings, says the court will have to decide how much consultation is enough. (Canada's highest court has announced it will hear a challenge from the village of Clyde River, Nunavut, which is trying to stop offshore energy exploration on the east coast of Baffin Island. It will also hear the Chippewa Thames First Nation's challenge to Enbridge's Line 9 pipeline, which carries Alberta oilsands bitumen to a Montreal refinery.--)
