Shiri Pasternak, the Yellowhead Institute’s Research Director, says Bill C-69, the Act to enact the Impact Assessment Act and the Canadian Energy Regulator Act, presents problems for Indigenous people. The purpose of this piece of legislation is to govern some of the biggest conflicts between Indigenous people and the State. Indigenous consent is mentioned only once in the bill around providing consent when a pipeline crosses a reserve.
