Resource development requires a Nation-to-Nation approach
The recent historic decision of the Supreme Court of Canada in favour of the Tsilhqot’in Nation means all levels of government will need to consider whether or not they’ve met the duty to consult or justified an infringement prior to resource development, says the NDP.
“As political leaders, we cannot accept that resource development is a zero-sum game. We have an obligation to help find a way forward that benefits us all,” writes Official Opposition Leader Tom Mulcair in a letter to the Prime Minister.
“Now, more than ever, we can and must work together to achieve real progress. You will find in me and my party willing and constructive partners,” added the leader of the NDP.
