The Keewatin appeal will be the next major Aboriginal law case heard by the Supreme Court of Canada. 

I've commented earlier on the issues raised and the importance of the case:

There are two appellants, Grassy Narrows First Nation who started it all, and my client, Wabauskang First Nation, who were added as a party at the Ontario Court of Appeal.

The appellants have now filed their written arguments:

Any First Nations or First Nation organizations interested in intervening are welcome to contact me to discuss the issues. Applications are due March 10th. The hearing is scheduled for May 15th.
