Justice Thomas R Berger of the British Columbia Supreme Court opens hearings on a northern pipeline right-of-way Mr Justice Berger will hold hearings in Yellowknife today, Inuvik on Wednesday and Whitehorse Thursday on an application by Canadian Arctic Gas Pipelines Ltd for the right-of-way The main purpose of the meetings is to establish prac- tices and procedures to be fol- lowed at the main hearing later this year The judge's terms of refer- ence say in part he is to "in- quire into and report upon the application by Canadian Arctic Gas having regard to the social, environmental and economic impact regionally of the construction, operation and subsequent abandonment of the proposed pipeline in the Northwest Territories and the Yukon The terms of reference seem to cover the

settlement, then we can talk about the pipeline Canadian Arctic Gas says there will be work for about men for three winters on the project Once built, the pipeline will create some 190 permanent jobs Mr Wan Shee says he is not impressed by the number of permanent jobs and argued that the federal government will not be too anxious to negotiate a land settlement if the pipeline project is allowed to go through first The N W T Brotherhood won a court case last year in which Mr Justice William Morrow of the territorial court said the Indians appear to have a good case in claiming aboriginal title
