Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations Concerned About Bill C-38

The Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (FSIN) feels that the Harper Government is violating its constitutional and legal obligations to accommodate and consult with regards to First Nation Treaty rights. Bill C-38 will replace current regulations in the environmental review process that will alter the opportunity for First Nations to be a meaningful participant in the approval process for major resource projects.
