PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: The application for an injunction against US Capital Energy by the Sarstoon Temash Institute for Indigenous Management is scheduled to be heard on Thursday in the Supreme Court.

Last week SATIIM went to the Supreme Court alleging that US Capital “has been working around the clock engaging in pre-drilling activities, which are part-and-parcel of exploratory drilling operations.”

According to SATIIM, these activities are a violation of the National Parks System Act and the Rights of the Indigenous Communities.

Executive Director of SATIIM Greg Choc explains that he is asking the court to force US Capital Energy to completely halt its pre-drilling activities.

The application for the injunction will be heard before Justice Michelle Arana.
