Steven Guilbeault, the federal minister of environment and climate change and the minister responsible for Parks Canada, takes questions from reporters following the tabling of new legislation to strengthen the protection of federally-owned historic places. Bill C-23 would also create three new positions on the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada for First Nations, Métis and Inuit representatives.

Guilbeault is joined at the news conference on Parliament Hill by Jaime Battiste, the parliamentary secretary to the minister of Crown-Indigenous relations, and Liberal MP John Aldag, whose private member’s bill that was tabled in 2017 also proposed to increase Indigenous representation on the historic sites board.
