I'm going to speak from the perspective of the sequence of our assemblies. Our first nations have almost tiered assemblies. For example, we have two major assemblies, and then we have special assemblies of chiefs and annual assemblies. The next major assembly for the AFN is in December. We will be scurrying and we will be pressured to address the issue of cannabis legislation. The next one is not going to be held until after the legislation has been introduced, so yes, we need the resources.
Secondly, the issue here is going to be that we have not been considered with respect to the decision-making process even in our own assemblies as first nations, so that's going to be a major sticking point. I think it's one that is going to suggest to the committee that they recommend to the federal government that they're going to have to reconsider this, because first nations simply will not be ready from the context of our constituencies, of being our chiefs, and of making decisions in those assemblies where we formally feed back to the federal government.
