The Council of Canadians hosted a public forum in Halifax this evening on what resource extraction would look like in Canada if the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) were implemented.
The outreach had noted, "We'll hear from local experts and advocates about what UNDRIP is, how it has been contravened by projects like the Site C dam in British Columbia and the Alton Gas project in Nova Scotia, and processes developed by Indigenous communities to give, or withhold, consent. Panelists will discuss the topic in broad terms as well as offer specific insights to ongoing projects and resistance movements."
The speakers were Patti Doyle-Bedwell and Naomi Metallic.
