Ginoogaming First Nation v. Quaternary and Ontario

The Tragic Wounding of Ontario’s Mining Industry

Illustrating Many Falsities and Harms of a Typical, Investment and Job-Killing, Indigenous, Treaty area “Consult and Accommodate” Claim

This December 30th, 2023 article, https://apple.news/AMqknzULMQiGrqZfq_6OL1g ,summarizes the reality that Indian bands have, or at least reasonably believe they have, a legal veto over any resource development project proposed for anywhere near where they are located. It illustrates the legal and moral hopelessness of the situation of legitimate resource proponents, especially the smaller ones, trying to get their projects off (or out of ) the ground, such as Michael Malouf of Geraldton, who was completely shut down by the Ginoogaming band and their big-city lawyers. As the below saga indicates, in Ontario, the governments have completely abandoned and betrayed such job and investment- creating people like Mr. Malouf in favour of sucking up to such selfish, mean-spirited, job and investment-killers like the Ginoogaming band.
