First Nations need to be involved in addressing climate change
Indigenous people need to be front and centre on climate change initiatives in Ontario.
This from Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day yesterday at the Centre for International Governance Innovation’s roundtable meeting on human rights and climate change.
Day said full inclusion of indigenous people and leadership is key to successfully addressing climate change in the province.
Day said it makes common sense that First Nations be allowed to fulfill Treaty Rights, and work to conserve lands and waterways in the province.
Day said climate change is a global issue that requires collaborative effort by all levels of government and everyone concerned about the future of the planet.
