Update #6

We are getting there and Chippewas of the Thames want to thank you so much for all your contributions to this cause. It's unbelievable that we need to go to court to prove what should have been done in the first place. Duty to consult was never even attempted by Canada with our nation and by allowing the national energy board to approve pipelines through our traditional territory without our consent or even a phone call is wrong. Why does the constitution of Canada get neglected like this? Canadians should be appalled by this non-compliance. Chippewas of the Thames will continue to fight this battle to stop tar sands oil from travelling through Ontario. Let's stand together!

Update #4

Update: June 22, 2015
First of all, thank you all so much for your support at our court hearing in Toronto on June 16th. Thank you so much for your gracious donations to this cause. We are in a "wait" mode as the decision of the court could be days or weeks away. We felt optimistic after the hearing but the courts can rule either way. The problem now is that after Enbridge fulfills it's new hydro testing obligation it will open the line. We are at a point now that major decisions have to be decided.
Options:
1. Wait for a decision from courts and if it is in our favour ask to quash the decision of the NEB.
2. Apply for a judicial review which is very very expensive but effective.
3. Appeal the stay decision, which will be tough.
4. Apply for an injunction, this will be hard to determine irreparable damage on an existing pipeline.
We are going to push for a judicial review but this requires a band council motion and lots more support. We would like to organize community outreach with pamphlets and information circles. We want to do everything possible to stop line 9. We feel it is outrageous that we need to pay these high costs to continue fighting large corporations in order to sustain our Mother Earth! Plus, pay to have Canada live up to the treaties and constitutional responsibility of duty to consult! Thank you all! Chippewas of the Thames is honoured to stand beside you on this important task!

Update #2

Thanks so much for your contributions both money and in-kind support. We are expecting a large rally at the court house at 180 Queen St. West Toronto on June 16th. Court starts at 9:30 and the rally starts at 11:00am! If you can come and support Chippewa's legal stance because Canada still has not consulted our nation and has given authority to a third party entity, the National Energy Board to approve projects like Enbridge pipelines line 9b. We lost our bid for a stay from the NEB so support is crucial at this time. Chippewa will fight as hard as we can but we need solidarity from all! Thank you!
