Canadian Lawyer quotes Toronto lawyer, Tracy Pratt, in an article about “the duty to consult”.
Tracy Pratt, a partner at Fasken Martineau DuMoulin LLP in Toronto, explains that relying only on the NEB or the Crown is unlikely to be effective. “Proponents have a very significant role to play themselves. Early and ongoing engagement is going to work to their long-term benefit. Consultation is not static; it is a fluid process,” says Pratt, a litigator who specializes in aboriginal law.
