Today, the Supreme Court of BC released a long-awaited decision in West Moberly First Nations v. British Columbia, 2017 BCSC 1700 and declared that the western boundary of the territory covered by Treaty 8 is the height of land along the continental divide between the Arctic and Pacific watersheds. Read the judgment: 2017 BCSC 1700
It’s been 35 years since the Charter became part of the Constitution of Canada. I’m grateful to the BC Branch of the Canadian Bar Association for the opportunity to reflect on the Charter decision in the Insite case in the June 2017 issue of BarTalk .
