Miner sues Ontario for $110 million

Northern Superior Resources TSXV:SUP, 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, losing it 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 to the Toronto Star.

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