What: Support Tsawout and Tsartlip First Nations leaders making presentations of Indigenous oral testimony as intervenors at the NEB re-consideration hearings
Where: Delta Ocean Pointe Hotel, outside the NEB hearings
When: Wednesday, November, 28th 10:30am-1pm.
The NEB is back at it again. After the federal giovernment's previous approval for the TransMountain pipeline and tanker expansion was quashed by the federal court of appeal for not discharging their constitutional duty to properly and respectfully consult First Nations and to protect the federally protected endangered southern resident orcas from the impacts of tanker traffic, the courts ordered the government restart the consultation process.
The NEB "re-consideration" hearings on the TransMountain expansion for indigenous community presenters will take place in Victoria from Monday November 25th to Thursday November 29th. at the Delta Ocean Pointe Hotel. The link pasted below gives the schedule as well a link to how to access live-stream.
Observers are not going to be permitted into the hearings which is for presenters only in a very small room, but a supportive presence outside.is being welcomed by some of the Indgenous leadership
Two local nations will be presenting at the NEB on Wednesday 28th: Tsawout First Nation at 9 am to 11 am and Tsartlip from 12:30 to 2:30 pm.
Tsartlip Chief Don Tom has asked that community members gather to support the local nations taking a strong stand asserting Title and rights and the connection to land and water and marine traditional food resources since time immemorial, at risk from the TransMountain project.
Although the general public is not allowed into these closed door proceedings, please join outside with signs, orcas and in the spirit of solidarity.
This event is being held on the unceded territory of the Lekwungen peoples.
