Business in Vancouver interviews David Austin on the Tsilhqot’in case

Firm News

In the July 8-14, 2014 issue of Business in Vancouver, David Austin has been asked to quote on the Tsilhqot’in case in the article, “Tsilhqot’in case is not a template for resolving all First Nations land disputes”. David once again uses his experience in this area to comment on the fact that ownership is not fee simple but collective and comes encumbered by the need to take future generations into account, which could create problems for financing independent power and other resource projects such as mines and pipelines on land that is subject to Aboriginal title. David is optimistic the problems can be worked out.
