Duty to consult - Government says "Be patient"

Government Staying Out Of FSIN Protest
FSIN decline invite to a meeting

The Government is urging First Nations to remain patient when it comes the duty to consult.

The Supreme Court of Canada ruled companies must consult when it encroaches on reserve and traditional land.

There is currently a peaceful protest along the Trans Canada outside Regina on that issue with Enbridge.

Minister June Draude says First Nations have told her there are a number of issues to discuss - work on traditional land and a promise to employ First Nation people that hasn't yet been fulfilled.

Draude set up a meeting with Enbridge which the First Nations leaders declined to attend.

The leadership defends that decision arguing they've had enough of words...the time is for action

Two Row Wampum Treaty

Two Row Wampum Treaty
"It is said that, each nation shall stay in their own vessels, and travel the river side by side. Further, it is said, that neither nation will try to steer the vessel of the other." This is a treaty among Indigenous Nations, and with Canada. This is the true nature of our relationships with Indigenous Nations of 'Kanata'.
