Canada’s prospects for international investment dollars have been on a the decline since 2015 when the NDP won in Alberta, followed by the Trudeau Liberal win federally. Now in 2017, we have a Green backed NDP government in BC.
If you thought Notley's war on the oil patch or Trudeau’s carbon tax was the ultimate investment chill, Premier Horgan just one upped them, bigly.
In what promises to be a massive obstacle for the 97 per cent of British Columbians who want prosperity, the BC government embraced and recognized the UN Declaration of Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UN-DRIP).
In what is simply more global governance by the globalist UN, the impact on BC and Canada, will be felt far and wide.
In his announcement, Premier Horgan stated:
“We are at a pivotal moment in our province. We can see a path to meaningful reconciliation and a true government-to-government relationship.”
A government to government relationship suggests BC must now treat First Nations like another country or jurisdiction, entitled to all the negotiating rights a sovereign government would hold.
This is a recipe for disaster, and no First Nations community suffering from a lack of opportunity stands to gain anything from it.
