Responsibility to consult (consent?) Federal Appeal Court decision on the pipeline

Although the just announced split decision (2-1) upholding the 8 Indigenous Peoples claim to violation of their right to consult and consent may be seen as a victory, the language suggests that the right of Indigenous Peoples as per the  UN Declaration of 2013 and amply developed in international jurisprudence to consult and consent is being misinterpreted and violated by the Federal Court...so this victory may be ultimately a stab in the back for international rights in Canada!
