Globe & Mail (Canada): Woodland Cree asks court to block oil sands project

October 3, 2007

The Woodland Cree First Nation, home to about 1,000 aboriginals located in northwestern Alberta, have filed an application with the Court of Queen’s Bench in Calgary against the Alberta government to block a Royal Dutch Shell PLC oil sands project near their land.

The Woodland Cree believe Alberta has not conducted meaningful consultation with aboriginals over the granting of oil and natural gas development leases. The Woodland Cree are specifically worried about total development plans in their region. Shell has about 12,500 barrels a day of oil sands production in northwestern Alberta, which it hopes to increase to about 100,000 b/d. and its also non-profit sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
