Duty to consult - Government says "Be patient"Government Staying Out Of FSIN Protest
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
