Indigenous group sues Canada utility for C$2.2 billion over dam

CANADA’S Innu community announced yesterday it had filed suit against Quebec province’s state-owned power company, alleging it wrongfully destroyed the Indigenous group’s land during construction of a massive dam.

For the “devastating impacts” and “irreparable harm” caused by Hydro-Quebec’s construction of the Churchill Falls mega-dam in the 1960s, the Innu people of Uashat Mak Mani-Utenam are seeking C$2.2 billion (RM7.04 billion).
