A court injunction against Judy Da Silva has been dissolved.

The injunction called for the arrest of Da Silva, if she proceeded to block the CN rail line. Yesterday the judge said the court had no evidence before it that showed Da Silva had further intentions to block the rail line.

The injunction was originally put in place when First Nation members wanted to hold a water ceremony blocking the CN Rail to protect local waterways from contamination, through the water ceremony. They noted the railway had three derailments within a month, including a spill near Timmins, which impacted a nearby First Nation.

However, after a conversation with CN Rail the members decided to hold the ceremony beside the rail line.

Lawyers for both Da Silva and CN Rail have also agreed to try to settle out of court for legal fees. Both sides are optimistic about a settlement being reached.

The final court date is set for June 23rd at 11:30 in the morning.
