BC Métis Federation sent a letter yesterday to Prime Minister Trudeau regarding the decision to stop the Northern Gateway Project last November and the current tanker ban being legislated with no consultation with our Métis members who are significantly impacted.
BC Métis Federation’s members and over 60 Métis owned businesses working with the Métis Economic Development Corporation had signed contracts for direct benefits worth millions in work on the Northern Gateway Project. Furthermore the decision by the Federal Government to implement a tanker ban is having a profound negative economic impact on some of our most marginalized members.
The BC Métis Federation letter is seeking to create dialogue with the Federal Government on these important discussions that need to be addressed given their major impacts.
