- Métis Nation of Alberta Region 1 v. Joint Review Panel, 2012 ABCA 352:Represented Shell Canada Limited before the Alberta Court of Appeal in the successful defence of a Leave to Appeal and Stay Application. In this case, the Applicants, two Alberta Aboriginal groups, sought leave to appeal a decision by the Federal-Provincial Joint Review Panel reviewing Shell's Jackpine Mine Expansion Project not to consider the adequacy of Aboriginal consultation in respect of this project. The Applicants also sought to stay the regulatory hearing pending the proposed appeal. The Court of Appeal denied the applications, concluding that the Joint Review Panel is not required to determine whether the Crown has met the duty to consult, and that the hearings themselves were a part of the consultation. The matter was then referred to the Supreme Court of Canada where we successfully defended a Leave to Appeal Application by the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation.
