On December 2, 2010, the Supreme Court of Canada dismissed leave to appeal from the Federal Court of Appeal's decision in Standing Buffalo Dakota First Nation v. Enbridge Pipelines Inc., 2009 FCA 308.

Standing Buffalo argued they were not adequately consulted about the construction of three massive pipeline projects.

The Supreme Court’s decision to not hear the appeal leaves intact the Federal Court of Appeal decision from October 2009, which in turn upheld the decisions of the National Energy Board that had been challenged by various First Nations.
