Maisie Shiell of Nipawin, in the Province of Saskatchewan (applicant) v. Atomic Energy Control Board and Cameco Corporation (respondents)

(T-1006-95)

Indexed As: Shiell v. Atomic Energy Control Board (Can.) et al.

Federal Court of Canada

Trial Division

Heald, D.J.

June 29, 1995.

Summary:

Cameco Corporation owned a uranium mine and mill at Key Lake, Saskatchewan. The Atomic Energy Control Board approved an amendment to Cameco's operating license to permit the development of an in-pit tailings disposal facility using the "previous surround" concept. Shiell, a private citizen from Nipawin, Saskatchewan, sought mandamus, prohibition and an interim injunction against Cameco. Shiell's proceeding was converted into an application for judicial review of the Board's order. The respondents argued that Shiell lacked the necessary standing to make the application.

The Federal Court of Canada, Trial Division, held that Shiell lacked standing and dismissed the application.
