The Supreme Court of Canada will not hear the appeal of a Quebec group seeking recognition of Métis rights to occupy hunting camps on public lands.
Brought forth by lead plaintiff GhislainCorneau and other members of the Communautémétisse du Domaine du Roy et de la Seigneurie de Mingan (CMDRSM), the case intended to defend the constitutional rights of 4,000 members living across the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec who say they are Métis.
The SCC announced Thursday morning that the case was dismissed with costs.
