ACFN continues to challenge oilsands projects

The Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation is staying strong in their fight of oil sands projects.
In a release, the ACFN say they have several developments they're awaiting updates on.
The decision on the Shell Jackpine Mine Expansion application was delayed after extensive review was brought forward by the group. ACFN says a verdict is expected soon.
The ACFN is preparing to travel to the Netherlands to attend the Shell AGM and voice their concerns on the application.
Other areas of development for the group include submitting a leave of appeal to the Superme Court in regards to ERCB (Energy Resources Conservation Board) consultations, engaging legal counsels with Shell, and caribou and bison protection.
Chief Allan Adam declined to comment until the Surpreme Court of Canada ruling is issued, which is expected later this week. The details of the release can be found at http://acfnchallenge.wordpress.com/2013/04/05/athabasca-chipewyan-first-nation-update/.
