Much of that work the government constitutionally mandated to consult has been left to Enbridge, the company building the pipeline, and to a special board that looked at the environmental impact of the controversial project.

While a section of the Constitution protects aboriginal and treaty rights, it wasn until a historic Supreme Court decision in 2004 that governments had a legal duty to consult aboriginals on matters that might affect them.

I think it important to understand that we getting to a situation where people are starting to talk across each other. law around the duty to consent has continued to evolve since the 2004 Supreme Court decision.
