The Union of Indian Chiefs calls it “hypocrisy” when the Premier says there’s been a lot of consultation with First Nations on LNG.
Grand Chief Stewart Phillip says when Christy Clark first assumed the party leadership, the relationship between the First Nations people and her government was placed on the back burner.
Phillip says during the last election there was little reference to First Nations issues, and he says that sentiment continues…
“There is no engagement of First Nations people, no consultation. In my mind it’s absolute hypocrisy to sit up there and suggest there is a deep engagement of First Nations in the Province of B-C.”
Phillip was part of a sold-out Vancouver conference focused on LNG where Clark was a speaker.
