Mr. Speaker, indigenous support for the northern gateway continues to grow, but the Liberal government has thrown up its hands and walked from the table.
I would like to quote from the 31 first nations that are equity partners. They said:
[This] project is a new way of doing business and sets a precedent for collaborative partnerships between First Nations and Métis communities and the resource industry.
Our ownership...will ensure a sustainable, prosperous future for generations to come.
Is the minister going to betray these first nations that have negotiated in good faith?
