St-Hilaire on Tsilhqot’in

I haven’t blogged on the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Tsilhqot’in Nation v. British Columbia, 2014 SCC 44, because aboriginal law is not really an area on which I feel comfortable pontificating here (my only post dealing with it is here). Yet aboriginal law in general, and the Tsilhqot’in case in particular are very important, so I am delighted to welcome back my friend Maxime St-Hilaire to guest-blog on this decision over the next few days. Prof. St-Hilaire (who recently contributed a much-read post arguing that the recent appointment of Justice Mainville from the Federal Court of Appeal to the Québec Court of Appeal is unconstitutional) teaches aboriginal law and constitutional law at the Université de Sherbrooke, and is an expert in the area. I am very much looking forward to his posts.
