Original language of petition: English
We, the undersigned citizens and residents of Canada call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to:
The Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations (CIR) would like to thank the petitioners for expressing their interest in the Wet’suwet’en Nation` and Coastal GasLink pipeline project. The Government endorsed the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples without qualification in 2016 and is committed to its full implementation in partnership with Indigenous peoples. On December 3, 2020, the Ministers of Justice and CIR introduced to Parliament Bill C-15 – An Act respecting the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
The Minister of CIR and the British Columbia Minister of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation met with the Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs between February 27 and 29, 2020. These talks focused on two separate topics: the recognition of Wet’suwet’en Aboriginal rights and title throughout their territory and the issues arising out of the Coastal GasLink project. These topics were discussed separately. The Coastal GasLink pipeline remains entirely within provincial jurisdiction.
Canada, British Columbia, and the Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chiefs signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on May 14, 2020. This MOU establishes a path forward for discussions toward substantive agreements that would describe future governance and the implementation of Wet’suwet’en rights and title. These nation-to-nation talks have been ongoing.
The Government is committed to reconciliation with all Indigenous peoples, including the Wet’suwet’en Nation.
Only validated signatures are counted towards the total number of signatures.
