It has been the prime minister’s mantra since coming to power: “No relationship is more important to Canada than the relationship with Indigenous peoples.” Justin Trudeau set out to reinforce that message at a forum on First Nations rights. But this week opposition to an LNG pipeline in British Columbia made it more obvious that pipeline projects remain a key source of tension; so much so that the forum had to be relocated when anti-pipeline demonstrators tried to crash the event.
