Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation sues Shell

The Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation has launched a lawsuit against Shell, saying the oil sands company isn't living up to funding obligations.
Chief Allen Adam says the two sides signed social economic agreements in 2003 and 2006, as part of Shell's approval to operate on traditional territory.
"Basically, Shell failed to honour on some of the commitments that were signed, agreed upon, so we continued to asking for the funding based on the programs they had to initiate and they kept on saying no," said Allen.
Allen says one of the areas Shell is refusing to fund is the construction of a community-based environmental monitoring program.
Shell has 20 days to respond to the 1.5 million dollar lawsuit.
