Indigenous Rights

Indigenous rights was one of the major news stories before the COVID-19 pandemic, so much so that people took to blocking roads and railways across Canada to protest a controversial natural gas pipeline. Like climate change, Indigenous rights don’t go away when governments ignore them. Reconciliation with Indigenous peoples needs to continue, including addressing all the First Nations reserves that are still in desperate need of proper housing and are still under boil water advisories.

The federal governments need to establish an even stronger relationship with Indigenous peoples which includes dialogue, cooperation and partnership, and respect.
