The report lays out a list of Canada's “barriers to gaining a strong foothold in the battery mineral supply chain”.
I would like to hear more details on two of the barriers that are listed in the report.
One deals with “Indigenous involvement”, where you talk about “The centralization of Indigenous leadership in the battery supply chain planning and actualization” and how that “needs to happen while projects are in their initial planning phases, not after the fact or later in [the] project”.
The second one is on remoteness, namely the “The relative remoteness of resources in Canada leads to higher cost for exploration.”
What I'd like to know is how Canada can lead by helping in these two areas.
