Trudeau apologizes for consultation flaws during AFN speech

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued apologies for his government’s handling of First Nations consultations on the Trans Mountain pipeline yesterday.

During an appearance at the Assembly of First Nations’ annual December meeting, Trudeau said that the federal government didn’t do a good enough job with their consultation process and that there was no excuse for that.

Trudeau went on to say that, while it is a slow process, his government is continually working to advance relationships with Indigenous communities.

Later in his speech, the Prime Minister addressed both the Indigenous Child Welfare legislation and Indigenous Languages Act, saying that they would both be tabled before January.

Trudeau also announced a delay to his promised Indigenous Rights Recognition Framework, saying more work was needed before legislation could be tabled.
