A second Alberta First Nation wants a court to allow it to appeal a review board’s decision that an open-pit coal mine in the Rocky Mountains is not in the public interest. The Stoney Nakoda Nation has filed a request with the Alberta Court of Appeal to appeal the decision that blocks the development of Benga Mining’s proposed Grassy Mountain project near the town of Crowsnest Pass in southwest Alberta. “The (panel) did not properly assess the impact that rejecting the project would have on Stoney Nakoda Aboriginal and treaty rights and economic interests related to the accommodation of those rights,” says the Stoney application.
