Law Times Article: Call for clarity on Crown’s duty to consult
Section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982 recognizes and affirms aboriginal and treaty rights and, as the Supreme Court of Canada confirmed in Haida Nation v. British Columbia (Minister of Forests), involves a duty upon the government to consult Aboriginal peoples and, at times, accommodate their interests. Such a duty is grounded in the honour of the Crown. Since the adoption of the language in 1982, indigenous peoples, resource industries and governments across Canada have all sought clarity about what is meant by the Crown's duty to consult. This article speaks to the need for clearer direction.
