Hypocrisy to vote against Bill C-262
It has now been 10 years since the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and that certainly includes the right to withhold or grant consent for the development of projects on their lands or waters.
Yet despite saying that the government supports this declaration, it delays its implementation into law, it now appears they are likely to vote against Bill C-262. This is the height of hypocrisy.
It’s time to support the very people who are most concerned about protecting their and our environment.
