OTTAWA – Pipeline companies and other industrial stakeholders could be obliged to abandon or alter proposed projects – if a review identifies risks of irreversible impacts – because of the Canadian government’s constitutional responsibility to accommodate the rights of First Nations groups, says a newly-released internal federal discussion paper. The document, released through access to information legislation by Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada, was prepared in advance of a December 1, 2011 meeting in Calgary between federal government officials and representatives of a pipeline industry lobby group. It highlighted First Nations rights defined under the 1982 constitution and upheld in various court decisions. “Accommodation can vary from: adjusting an activity or process to abandoning a project, to placing terms and conditions on any permits or authorizations,” said the dscussion paper.
