Band Ignored on Contaminated Dirt
Malahats seek injunction until they are 'properly consulted' on soil dumping
Jason Walker, Malahat Nation
oday, Malahat Chief Caroline Harry and council filed an application in the BC Supreme Court supporting the grant of a stay of the current permit held by Cobble Hill Holdings to permit the dumping of contaminated soils.
In reviewing the
evidence presented in this matter to date, the Malahat Nation does
not feel it was properly informed nor consulted by the Crown on this
project in a satifactory way. Further, after failure of the Crown to
respond to requests for information to this matter, the Nation has
no choice but to take pause.
Walker told The Voice on Thursday, they expect the court's decision Friday.
