Madam Speaker, the hon. parliamentary secretary spoke about indigenous consultation, so I will quote the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation chief, Chief Allan, who said:
We had no choice but to go on with this thing. We were the last nation that didn’t have an agreement with Teck resources. It’s not like we wanted to pursue this, but we were put in a position of do or die situation and we had to do it.
Chief Gerry Cheezie, who is downstream from the Teck project, said, “Our rights are being trampled.”
The missing and murdered indigenous women and girls and two-spirit people report describes the relationship between work camps, which experience an influx of transient workers who arrive to work in mines or energy industries, and higher rates of sexual assault and harassment. I am curious to know the hon. parliamentary secretary's comments in regard to these kinds of resource extraction industry camps. How do they impact indigenous women and girls? Why is the consultation process one to be praised?
