Constitutional Question Raised by Blood Tribe Woman Charged in Connection with Blockade

 
 

CARDSTON: The three women charged with intimidation on the Blood Reserve, for allegedly blocking a road used by an oil company September 9th will return to court December 21st.

Lois Frank announced Monday morning in Cardston court that she has broken away from the trio and their lawyer to pursue a constitutional question.

She says aboriginal people have a right to consultation and protection on their lands.

All three women say chief and council did not consult the tribe before signing a multi-million dollar deal with Murphy Oil last year.

One of their major concerns stems from a process the oil company employs. Called "hydraulic fracturing" or "fracking," the process mixes sand and chemicals with large quantities of water which are blasted underground. The impact fractures rocks layers, releasing natural gas pockets that are otherwise inaccessible.
