APTN National News OTTAWA—The Trudeau Liberal government says it will directly consult with First Nation communities impacted by the proposed Trans Mountain and Energy East pipeline projects in addition to the existing regulatory processes handled by arms-length federal agencies.
The federal government has previously outsourced the Crown’s constitutional duty to consult to regulatory bodies like the National Energy Board (NEB). The NEB is currently charged with reviewing both Kinder Morgan’s $5.4 billion Trans Mountain pipeline twinning project and TransCanada’s $15 billion Energy East cross-Canada pipeline project. Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr said Wednesday that the federal government would now launch and fund its own consultation process with First Nations communities—likely through a ministerial representative—at the conclusion of the NEB’s review of both pipeline projects.

Guujaaw tells Suzuki why the Haida are opposed to logging.1:13 "What that simple statement was saying is that to be Haida means to be connected to the land in a profound way," said Suzuki.
"We don't end at our skin or finger tips, it's the trees, and the fish, and the air, and the birds all of that is what makes the Haida who they are. " Guujaaw's world view resonated with Suzuki — it put words to his own deep connection to nature he developed as a child living in Slocan, B.C. The Environment Edition Theme and Resources Brainstorm.
