1:00 pm - 3:00 pm Legal Implications of Extra-Judicial Remedies

The session will first look at the legal consequences of civil disobedience when all else fails from the perspective of three lawyers: one familiar with the TransMountain Pipeline protests and KI protests in Ontario, one involved in the Muskrat Falls protests in Newfoundland and Labrador and the third a professor on the impact of the recent Alberta anti-protest legislation on Indigenous rights (45 minutes).

Mark Gruchy, Sullivan Breen Defence
Darcy Lindberg, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Alberta

The second session will first look at how it is possible to exercise a Treaty or Aboriginal right by “just doing it”, using the Sipekne’katik First Nation moderate livelihood fishery launch in 2020 as an example. The violent response of the non-Indigenous fishers and the community’s legal proceeding to hold RCMP accountable for failing to protect the moderate livelihood fishery will also be discussed (30 minutes).

Speaker: James Michael, Pink Larkin

The session will end with a panel of 3-4 Indigenous leaders speaking about and discussing their experiences with judicial and extrajudicial remedies (45 minutes).

Chief Andrea Paul, Pictou Landing First Nation
