Thank you, Mr. Chairman, that helps me.
I think each first nation is different. Some of them are willing to deal with the province, therefore they do tripartite agreements. One example may be the social services delivery, such as child welfare, education, some of these others. If they have a tripartite agreement then they're in full approval and in favour of proceeding. But that's only if they have participation and the ability to decide for themselves.
We can't speak in a general manner, but if there's tripartite involvement, they have no problems. Where they see problems is if there are bilateral agreements, between federal and provincial, deciding on their rights, and it impacts them. That's when there are problems, and concerns arise.
