“Canadian pipeline proponent to suspend work” by Henry Lazenby, Mining Journal

Mining Journal quotes Toronto lawyer Kevin O’Callaghan in an article on Canadian pipeline proponent to suspend work.

Kevin O'Callaghan, Fasken Martineau's leader of Indigenous Law, told Mining Journal the topic of reconciliation had been flaring up over the past five years, but had become more urgent in the most recent two years. "The concept of ‘free, prior and informed consent' is enshrined in United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), which was adopted by British Columbia late last year," he said.
