Premier John Horgan: “We need to reconcile”
Premier John Horgan participated in a traditional canoe landing protocol practice as part of National Indigenous Peoples Day celebrations at Royal Roads June 21.
He said Indigenous relations have been at the forefront of much of his government’s work.
“These are issues that have been longstanding and it’s time we address them… Whether it be pipelines of forestry or mining or aquaculture, we need to reconcile that this land does not belong to investment. It belongs to the people of BC and firstly it belonged to Indigenous People.”
