Madam Speaker, I live in a territory where the Nuu-chah-nulth have been in court with the Government of Canada. They won in the Supreme Court, and twice it was appealed by the government. They, again, won those appeals, which affirmed their right to catch and sell fish.
We have seen what has happened with the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal when it comes to child welfare and the discriminatory practices of the government and its policies.
Again, I do not see the Conservatives there, defending the laws of this country, fighting for indigenous people when they win in court, the dozens and dozens of court cases that side with indigenous people, reaffirming their constitutional rights in this country. Here, today, they are saying they are standing up for indigenous communities. Where were they for the Nuu-chah-nulth people?
The member states that the government fails to enforce the law, or that it takes the law into its own hands, and that failure to enforce the law leads to escalation, social and economic unrest and challenges.
When do indigenous people start to take things into their own hands? When the government does not enforce its own laws and its own courts of this country. Maybe the member could enlighten us on that.
