Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the question from my colleague, but there are suicides, bankruptcies, anxiety and mental health issues within the agricultural community as well.
Why are we putting that aside as not an issue at all in favour of another part of the country, when the vast majority of the Wet’suwet’en community, the elected council, the elected chief, as well as the majority of the hereditary chiefs, all support the Coastal GasLink project?
What is frustrating for me is we are throwing every issue that has been around for 150 years into this. Absolutely, I believe that consultation and reconciliation is a fundamental part of our country, and it needs to be addressed. However, does it have to happen at the expense of our entire economy? I do not think that is the case.
These negotiations could happen outside of this, and should be happening outside of this.
