CTV News – The Interlake Reserves Tribal Council, which includes six communities in Manitoba’s Interlake region, is in court asking for a judicial review related to ongoing work on a multimillion-dollar flood protection project. The First Nations say the province issued a permit to start clearing a 23-kilometre-long portion of Crown lands to start building an all-season road in 2019 without advising nearby communities. The council also wants the court to evaluate the province’s duty to consult before issuing permits that allow Crown land to be cleared.
