Maybe a niche thread, but picking up from the @Yellowhead_ work I led on injunctions, I've been back at the dataset & want to show you how the "irreparable harm" you have to prove to "win" is weighted towards financial loss, rarely recognizing or valuing Indigenous economies.
Going back to '74, the court told the Cree: "It is imp to note at the start that hydro-electricity is the only primary energy resource possessed by the province of QC... this resource has become of a capital importance to ensure the economic future & well-being of the citizens.”
Despite concerns re: logging to traplines, Mathias Colomb lost b/c: "If Repap is hindered in its activities, the consequences will be the forced closure of its plant in the Pas...w/ the consequent loss of jobs for employees & loss of revenues...” Losses deemed “unrecoverable.”

This is for Art Manuel who I've been thinking about everyday. As I lay sick in bed watching #wetsuwetenstrong unfold, I was sorting thru hundreds of pages of FOIs from BC that clock internal responses to the Delgamuukw decision in the years immediately following the SCC decision.
As Art pointed out, Ab title scared the hell out of industry & govts seeking certainty. BC pushed hard for modern treaties. See this letter from INAC to his BC counterpart: “I believe that our best response to the Delgamuukw decision may be to get offers on the table sooner."
There was no bottom too low to scrape to compel groups. In this communication, a bureaucrat suggests withholding healing dollars for IRS survivors from communities not at the negotiating table.
