I agree with what Celeste was saying, and I'll try to add one or two points quickly.
One is that consent really is the foundation of the Canadian Constitution. It's part of our democracy. Democracy is about the will of the people being expressed. I'm hoping everyone in this room is representing their constituents through this engagement in the process.
It's also for me not such a foreign or large leap to think about how, when the Canadian state is working at developing our relationships with indigenous peoples, we take time to ensure that the appropriate mechanisms exist for indigenous peoples to consent to any activity that's going to particularly impact their rights and interests.
I think that part of what the UN declaration is getting at, and these other international human rights instruments that recognize this right to participate in decision-making on the basis of free, prior, and informed consent, is that it's about ensuring that indigenous peoples are involved early on in the process. Sometimes I think the challenge is that the plan has evolved too far, and then the company says it's fully baked. Getting involved at an earlier point makes sure the processes that are set up allow the parties to hear one another.
