OTTAWA – A group of First Nations chiefs urges Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to apologize for making # bossy or and eye sexist ötürü comments, and further heightens Ottawa's tension on controversial Trans Mountain pipeline expansion.
His apology came after Trudeau's first meeting on Wednesday, when he answered questions of Judy Wilson, head of the Neskonlith Indian band in the United States. Wilson said Ottawa's support for pipeline expansion was not in line with the speech delivered by the Prime Minister last year to the United Nations, describing Canada's past relationship to Indigenous people as ğin humiliation, neglect and abuse,, and implementing policies. promised to put. The First Nations' self-determination will help.
Wilson asked, s Why wasn't it applied to the Trans Mountain pipeline passing through our 513-kilometer lands when we talked about the United Nations and going self-determination and consent? Wil
In response, Trudeau said people are ine many reasons ine to support the Trans Mountain project, and that Canadians ini must respect people's choices in order to support or not support such developments Tr. Edi And I don't think we should criticize them for not criticizing them, Judy, onları he added.
The British Columbia Native American Chefs Union asked these comments to comment on Wednesday evening that Trudeau was "as aggressive and aggressive as it was aggressive".
Iniz You have responded to your first name with complete disrespect and protocol negligence, Mektup the letter said.
UBCIC also noted that Trudeau used an “extremely sexist approach bir in the discussions; in response to Wilson's comments, he received a more sympathetic tone in response to a male chef's questions about the apparently defective consultation process for the Trans Mountain pipeline.
In his UBCIC statement, Trudeau's response to Lee Spahan, head of the Coldwater Indian Band, said Ottawa had "not done a good enough job" in the project's previous consultations.
Matt Pascuzzo, the press secretary of the prime minister's office, said in a statement to the National Post office that gönder the relationship between our government and the Indigenous people is not more important Baş. Pascuzzo said that Ottawa was connecting with "117 local groups" on the Trans Mountain and "will take the time to move on the right path". He didn't respond directly to a question about apologizing as Trudeau wanted.
The tensions indicate the existence of a growing gap between the expansion of Ottawa and the Trans Mountain pipeline, after Truvaton decided to buy the pipeline for $ 4.5 billion in August. Construction on the extension of Trans Mountain has been delayed after a Federal Court of Appeal ruled a part of Ottawa's consultations with the First Nations groups to advance the project.
Trudeau and his cabinet ministers were both vocals in their support of expanding the pipeline and claiming they could become a global leader in climate change. Meanwhile, the energy industry has increasingly criticized the Liberal government among record low oil reductions for Canadian producers.
On Thursday morning, UBCIC asked Ottawa to review its decision to support the Trans Mountain project. Environmental activists and some First Nations communities suggested that Ottawa's decision to set a timetable for the second round of consultations was predetermined by its position on the pipeline.
"His true consent was not manipulated, and a quick government was not rushed to a deadline or prejudiced interest," Wilson said in a written statement Thursday morning. Said. ”Canada is entering an open conflict as the buyers of the pipeline, and as Crown, it needs to fulfill its commitment to the First Nations.“
The oral hearings for the First Nations groups as part of the reconstruction process of the National Energy Council's Trans-Mounted consultation process began in Calgary on November 20, and this week at Nanaimo, B.C.
