Mr. Speaker, we have seen what happens when the government and industry do not consult on major projects like the northern gateway.
The coastal first nations have made clear their opposition to the project and process. Now Kinder Morgan is proposing to double the Trans Mountain pipeline that would run through at least 15 first nation reserves and 30 traditional territories. Failure to negotiate in good faith has left a cloudy picture of rights and title in British Columbia.
When will the minister commit to government-to-government talks with the affected first nations?
