Natural Resources committee  A productions cap would go across the field and basically ruin a lot of economies in the west. An emissions cap will allow us to develop sustainable oil production, and that means using carbon capture, utilization and storage facilities to offset the emissions that are used to produce things like we're trying to produce right now.

Natural Resources committee  Thanks for the opportunity to speak to you today. I would like to acknowledge that I'm speaking to you from Calgary, Alberta, the traditional territory of the Treaty 7 first nations and the Blackfoot Confederacy, which includes the Siksika, Piikani and Kainai first nations. Treaty 7 also includes the Tsuut'ina Nation and the Stoney Nakoda Nation, which includes Chiniki, Bearspaw and Wesley first nations.

Industry committee  No. We are under the impression and believe that two-thirds of the chiefs we canvass every year are in support of natural resource development. We are a group with 81 members right now from across Canada. We believe in the next year or so we'll have over 100. In the next three years, we may have as many as 400.

Industry committee  I think we need more indigenous participation and dialogue and involvement in natural resource development. As you know, the northern gateway project guaranteed two billion dollars' worth of benefits for 31 out of the 40 communities along the corridor. It also included a guarantee that the funding partners—there were nine producers and Enbridge as an operator—would hire a CEO from one of the first nations from the communities in B.C.

Industry committee  I think our biggest problem was, first of all, that we didn't participate in the 150 years of natural resource development that went on in this country. I think it was probably partly our fault and partly the government's fault. Our ability to be able to participate in the natural resource industry as employees and contractors needed a little push.

Dale Swampy

Industry committee  Good morning. Thank you for the opportunity to speak to you today on the study of competitiveness in Canada. My name is Dale Swampy. I'm a Samson Cree Nation member and a COVID survivor. I'm honoured to be presenting to you from the traditional territory of the Tsuut'ina Nation and the Treaty 7 first nations in southern Alberta.

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  I just want to say that the government's commitment to reconciliation, to working with first nations to resolve the kinds of problems that exist right now, is unprecedented. I think they are doing a great job in trying to work with first nations communities and leaders to enhance our ability to be able to become part of Canada.

Dale Swampy

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  Yes. I believe what you say is true. The action plan should have been done before the legislation was passed.

March 23rd, 2021Committee meeting

Dale Swampy

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  Yes. I don't believe that the legislation, in our discussions with legal experts.... Unless FPIC has some real value and actually does give veto power to the first nations, I don't think any rights that are incorporated within the UNDRIP legislation actually enhance any rights that we already have.

March 23rd, 2021Committee meeting

Dale Swampy

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  In my opinion—and this comes from a lot of evaluation as to what UNDRIP's potential can become—the legislation is ambiguous at best. It's going to create a lot of legal conflict between provinces, first nations and the federal government. We're worried that this legislation is not being developed to enhance our ability to participate in the economy and in Canadian society as it should.

March 23rd, 2021Committee meeting

Dale Swampy

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  We believe the natural resource industry is the strongest industy in Canada. We have focused our means to our goal to partner with natural resource industries in order to bring us out of poverty. We believe poverty is the cause of all our social ills. Teenage suicide, domestic violence, lack of education—everything you can think of that we have been struggling with for the last 150 years has come because we do not participate fully in this economy.

March 23rd, 2021Committee meeting

Dale Swampy

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  Yes. We are having a hard time understanding exactly the process and whether or not it's going to provide any real benefits to first nations communities. Canada itself is a premier leader in human rights. Canada is a premier leader in the duty of industry and government to consult with first nations.
