It's through consensus, as much as we can. Ultimately, the authority of the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs is in the chiefs and the assembly through the passage of formal resolutions that represent the mandate that I as the president and our executive are obligated to follow.
We work very closely with our member communities and ensure that we're onside with respect to their issues and their world view. But again, this business, the very important business of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, is not abstract notions. Governments need to seriously commit to the words it entails in order to have a better system of governance and decision-making. Certainly, the Supreme Court of Canada has offered its view on a number of occasions with respect to shared decision-making.
We need to roll up our sleeves and get this work done and move towards legislative reform and policy development in order to have a better system that works for all of the parties.
