Mr. Speaker, the Trans Mountain pipeline review process dragged on for many years. The level of indigenous consultation that happened throughout this process is unheard of in this country. The high level of engagement from officials at the most senior levels would be hard to replicate in any other process. This is the type of example we need to show when we want to improve our nation-to-nation relationship, to have high-level buy-in engagement from our leaders. That is precisely what we need to pursue when we are talking about the Coastal GasLink project. I was encouraged to see our Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations present in B.C. a couple of days ago to meet with the Wet'suwet'en leaders and address the concerns that were raised.
