Societe des infrastructure et al. concerning the right of kahnistensera Mohawk Mothers to represent themselves in court without an attorney. This judgment acknowledges that they have a right to follow the kaianerekowa.

FOR THESE REASONS THE COURT:

WITHOUT prejudice to the defendants’ right to raise this issue at a later date after the hearing for an interlocutory injunction.

WITHOUT LEGAL COSTS
