A new deal – BC Business Mag

A new deal

It was a walk in the woods one cool October day in 2006 that awoke John Irving, vice-president of general counsel at B.C. Transmission Corp. (BCTC), to what aboriginal consultation is really about. Irving knew that BCTC, a Crown corporation, had a legal duty to consult First Nations groups about the potential impacts of its 10-year, $5.1-billion capital expansion plan; several recent landmark court cases about aboriginal rights and title had made this clear. But as Irving and his colleagues followed their Chehalis guides through the patch of Fraser Valley forest, seven kilometres northeast of Harrison Mills, the spirit behind the law became vividly apparent: it was about listening and learning and respect.
