Q12 - If elected, would you intentionally include, and work in partnership with, the Algonquin Anishinaabe people and other Indigenous people in the creation and implementation of environmental policies?

Rebecca Bromwich

Yes.

Shawn Menard

Yes, it is essential that a diversity of indigenous voices are consulted. For example, the vote to expand the urban boundary and include the Tewin development was a decision with monumental environmental implications. It was framed as an act of reconciliation when no consultation was done with all of the Algonquin First Nations in the areas. The expansion of the boundary has implications for Indigenous groups, including the erosion of productive agricultural areas, as well as threatening sensitive environmental areas through development. 

Dan Rogers

No. Indigenous affairs is a federal jurisdiction. That said, all people should work to improve the implementation of better environmental policies.
