Consulting First Nations first

We at CMJ have written recently about the conflicts between Aboriginal peoples and the mining industry. And we have been taken to task by some readers when they think we would further disenfranchise native bands. That has never been our intention. Instead, we have tried to point out how contentious these issues are. To say that a dispute that lands people in jail is “contentious” is an understatement.
