Miner sues Canada’s province of Ontario for $110 million

NSR, a Sudbury, Ontario-based mining firm is suing the province for $110 million, claiming it failed to discharge its “constitutional duty” to engage First Nations on behalf of the company, which resulted losing the right to explore in northwestern Ontario.

"My understanding is that ministry staff have made efforts over the past year to engage with both the company and the First Nation, and have offered to facilitate discussions between them," said Minister of Northern Development and Mines Michael Gravelle in an e-mail statement to the Star.

The firm’s accusations have not been proved in court.
