"prime minister justin trudeau" Discussed on The Current
"Of people that are worried about whether or not they're going to be able to make ends meet because of the impacts but I'm thinking about the people at the blockade who are standing up because they are so frustrated. They're so angry and their right to be angry. This is a serious crisis that we're faced with but sadly the reality is a prime minister has let a lot of those people down. Let's look at the record right now. What is going on in our country? We've got a human rights tribunal decision that found that the government didn't just underfund or discriminate indigenous kids but they did so recklessly willfully purposefully on top of that that insult this government is taking those kids to court should meet saying leader of the EPA speaking in the House of Commons. Chris Hall The premiers in Ontario and Quebec and in stronger language in Alberta and British Columbia. Spoken out against these blockades Andrew. Scheer perhaps picking up on some of that calling them illegal blockade saying that these are radical activists and demanding that there is a strong action taken to Remove those blockades. This is a political issue. And I'm sure to your point about conflicting Advice the government is listening to Canadians and doing some polling as well. Where's your sense as to how Canadians are On this issue you know. It's an interesting I I I I did some interviews last week for a column that I wrote and I think there was a sense that I got from people that They understand. Reconciliations is a long term process. And they believe that it is time to address some of the equity that people from first nations face on a daily basis At the same time I I get the sense now. Listening to reporters who are covering the story Out of town the NIGGA and other places that there is a growing frustration to that. This is now dragging out. There doesn't seem to be a timetable for either getting that dialogue going to ensure that the issues that are being raised her address and then at the same time making sure. The tracks aren't blocked in that people can go about their daily business. So we've heard this from Jagmeet Singh on one side saying there's a failure of the government to act on fundamental issues facing indigenous people on the Conservatives and Andrew. Scheer saying they're holding the economy hostage. There is sympathy. I'm sure for both of those positions and the Liberals as they are wants to do matter trying I think to find that ground trying to accommodate both sides of the argument while showing that they can actually make some progress and get this dispute result or Harare reporter was CBS's indigenous unit is with me here in our Toronto Studio. We make of what rest ibew had to say that if this isn't resolved Through dialogue that we could see escalation and Next chapter in this as as it continues to unfold. I think to answer that question. I'm going to jump back in time. A little bit to two thousand fifteen when the Government Operation Center hush from which is under public safety actually produced a report a Risk Assessment. On what would happen if rated a UNICEF UNICEF Stoughton Campbell nuanced clan of the wet suit. And and he did a risk assessment because a point in time Transcanada the that was what they recalled them was looking was considering an injunction because that Stoughton camp had been there since two thousand ten and they were blocking their workers so the risk assessment actually concluded that if there was a raid to enforce injunction there the the the requirements from the federal resources from the federal side would be limited. They figured that you know the PC shampoo would could be able to handle that situation and that assessment sort of came true Last year after the first raid but that assessment is completely falling apart now. What are the chances of you know? That's that's you know. That's that's a tough question to answer because a lot of there's a lot of variables involved. I guess what's interesting is you seeing now protests across the country and that this was about pipeline and now it seems to be about two to Russ's point and to your point much more than that. There's much more that's on the table. That's being discussed as as this continues not to be resolved there. There's a possibility that if if there is enforcement in ten P. P. Go in there is a possibility that there could be reaction in other in other Mohawk communities maybe other parts of the country this is. This is the thing about what's happening. Is that everything sort of interconnected and the most August example of that is the connection between ten in Asia and what suit in the fact that they are in Communication. And that you know the position you know they. They launched their their their auction on the same day that the RCMP began their operations in. What's who so there. There's a lot of communication going on Between nations between people a lot of people are watching them. You know we just. Mpri there was a demonstration along. You know the the bridge there that connects to New Brunswick. You know don't forget. In two thousand thirteen we saw months long demonstrations against fracking by the magma. So in terms of how how? How can this get? You know it's hard. It's hard to tell but right now it seems that there's a lot of vapors in the air and and it it could ignite in ways that are hard to predict. What's the way out of this? Do you think that I mean that's also a very very difficult question? I mean I know the the you know the way out. According to the people who are on the lines is for the impeach to withdraw from whatsoever in territory. I mean that's one of three astronauts wouldn't have put on the table. So is that possible? You know what would it take? What would people be happy with the P saying that they are going to implement a an extraction plant withdrawal? Plan step-by-step because the issue that that's there is that there's an injunction that exists. They've been there since last year. So there's this sort of belief or a requirement that you know. Maybe they have to make ensure that the injunction is followed You know there's some nervousness about a renewed you know protests or actions to block coastal gasoline. So that's that's that's in play there there. There are more it's cliche but there are multiple moving parts. But you know there are certain points that stick out in in the one is the RCMP being.

This is a special edition of the current. I'm Matt Galloway and we are speaking about. The prime minister spoke about earlier this morning. In the House of Commons he was speaking about the ongoing pipeline protests and the blockades across this country. Here's a little bit of what the Prime Minister had to say. People are troubled by what they've been. Witnessing this past week they know that these protests are serious that this is a critical moment for our country and for our future on all sides. People are upset and frustrated because this is about things that matter rights and livelihoods the rule of law and our democracy. What we are facing was not created overnight. It was not created because we have embarked upon a path of reconciliation recently in our history. It is because for too long in our history. We failed to do so so finding the solution will not be simple. We'll take determination hard work and cooperation. There is no relationship more important Canada than the one with indigenous peoples and today as prime minister once again formerly extending my hand in partnership and trust we need to resolve this through dialogue and mutual respect to the whatsoever and Mohawk nations and indigenous leaders across the country. We are listening. We are not asking the stop standing up for your communities your rights and for what you believe. We only ask that you be willing to work with the federal government as a partner in finding solutions. We cannot resolve this balloon just like we need indigenous leaders to be partners. We also need Canadians just to show both resolve and collaboration. What is the alternative? Do we want to become a country? Irreconcilable differences for people talk but refused to listen and Prime Minister. Speaking in the House of Commons earlier. This hour Chris Hall National Affairs Editor Host of the House. And the remaining minute or so that we have How much time does the Prime Minister have to Resolve this? I don't think he has a lot of time now. We heard from a lot of people who are concerned about. Having supplies interrupted passengers. Who are growing impatient with and travel and disappointed with what he said is well yeah. It's a good question I it's a feedback is probably going to come a little bit more fully in the next couple of hours or so but I think people were looking for some kind of timetable. Some kind of outreach. To ensure that this could end the blockades that exist in time the outside Belleville and in other parts of the country and they probably will be disappointed that they didn't hear that all they heard was a commitment to continue to talk. And at this point after ten days of blockades in Ontario for example and it continued issues around British Columbia with the Port in Halifax support Everyone might be wondering when it's all going to end Chris all good to have you with us this morning. Thanks Matt Chris Paul National Affairs editor host of the House. It's interesting in hearing the reaction from people coast to coast what they were expecting from the prime minister. Of course we heard as well from Andrew. Scheer a leader of the Conservative Party. We also heard from the leader of the MVP in the Bloc Quebecois. All of whom were expecting Chris was saying perhaps some more detailed time. Line in terms of reaction to these blockades and a greater sense as to how they would be addressed in a meaningful way. What exactly will the prime minister do next whereas government going to go? We've been hearing from the Indigenous Services Minister who has been saying that the opportunity for dialogue continues people calling on not just the prime minister but the deputy prime minister to meet directly with those hereditary chiefs in northern British Columbia South.

"Not Really. We've we've heard platitudes from the prime minister for the last four years. Like I said about reconciliation nation-to-nation decolonization. He's co-opted a lot of the terminology but as as people seeing he says one thing and does another and I think he raised expectations. And like I said I think he. He has a lot to do with this because he didn't address the land issue in his first mandate and A lot of the people expected him to do that and they. They didn't so when the situation with what's happened you know with them. Being removed from their territory With with the police That that reverberated across the country because many people Share the same feeling that you know the LANDRACE ISSUES. That are unresolved centered. The elected first. Nations chiefs gave a press conference before the prime minister spoke The national chief of the Assembly of first nations parallel guard was among them. Some of them were asking for an end to the blockade. Others were not some were saying. That's the time for this. Blockade maybe have passed and that there is an opportunity. It's not a sign of of defeat but a sign that you step back and let dialogue. Move forward what was your reaction to that. Well you know. I wasn't surprised. I mean the prime minister did say yesterday. He caught somebody digits leaders and obviously I think the ones who are the press conference for some of the ones he called the Mohawk band council chiefs and the AF EN leader Perryville guard but they represent the Indiana system in India neck system in the band offices across the country. The chief councils You know are are controlled in a form of direct rule indirect rule by by Ottawa. And they certainly won't have any influence on the people taking the actions on the ground they kept using the term blockade protesters you know those teams and and you know people take offense to that. Because they say their land defenders and they're not Blockades in fact in time to Nager there beside the track. They're not onto track so in and a lot of ways. They're kind of perpetuating some of the myths going around but I don't think it's going to help even grand chief Serge Simon while he was an honored during that press conference. There was a group of community members. Padlocked is band office and we're protesting in front. Saying he does speak for them. There were strong words from Andrea. Sherr as well leader of the Conservative Party. He said that the Canadian economy in his words has been held hostage and again as Chris Hall was saying double down on his comments about those involved in the protests saying that they had been appropriating and indigenous agenda. What do you make of interferes it? Well I think there was a responsible comments and but you know it's typical of opposition leaders. They can they can say all kinds of things because they're not in in power You know I still believe that. Yudo government one thing. I agree with him on his that. they're talking but it has to take more than talk they have to take action and resolve You know the getting the police out and the cost of gasoline workers out of territory and find out another way to re-route that pipeline. If they don't do that I think You don't you're GonNa see this situation continue. And if they try to use force. I think you'll see the tactics change. What do you mean cross the country it? Well I I think people aren't just going to be sitting there waiting for the police and just arrested. They're probably going to start. You know doing other actions Where the move around in any case It will prolong it. I think and like I say there is a danger for you know Human and financial cost to increase if that starts to happen. But to your point that there isn't really and this isn't gonNA mentioned as well. There isn't really the opportunity for movement unless the RCMP. Move Out of the territory and coastal gasoline needs to rethink their pipeline. They're coordinating with the white suit and Hereditary chiefs if there were wetsuit and hereditary chiefs. Ask them you know okay. We've got into police out you know that's it and they asked people to To stand down then they will but otherwise. I don't think they're going to do it. They're certainly not going to do it. Listening to Van Council Chiefs. What about just finally. We heard from Propane Industry and trying to get its product across the country. And he's worried that there are people in the maritimes who could end up frozen pipes no heat because of What's happening right now? How are how are interpreting that element of of this conversation because there are a lot of people who have a rising sense? I suppose a frustration as this continues. Well I think it's regrettable but again I think it has to rest at the feet of the prime minister because he's the one that didn't deal with this thing for the first four years in office and he let it languish and now now it's coming back to bite him because he didn't address and he could accelerate that right he could go their today jet over there today and sit down and they could have a meeting in sort this out within hours if they If they had the political will but I don't sense that the political will is there because it would mean they'd have to change the position. They've been taking on indigenous issues because he's indigenous rights framework was rejected In two thousand eighteen by most of the chiefs across the country that's why he didn't introduce that rights recognition bill into parliament that he was planning on doing and he has an address that yet he's been focusing on programs. Not Rights. I I. It's good to speak with you. Thank you thank you. Indigenous policy analyst and editor of the first nations strategic bowls and Chris Hall is our National Affairs Editor Chris Hall. Why hasn't the prime minister jumped on a plane and head out to British Columbia to meet with the hereditary chiefs? Yeah that is a curious A not an oversight but it's curiousity hasn't at least Ensured that Carolyn Bennett. The indigenous Crown Relations Minister isn't in BC. Right now willing to meet at any time. With what Soden. I suspect in part Matters that you can't you can't Acknowledge The the blockades and and and and then reward people by having a meeting. I think that part of the advice that he's getting on the other hand it really does come down to listening. Russ was just saying Who TAKES THE FIRST STEP? Here is withdrawing the federal government by ensuring that the RCMP or withdrawn. Is it by offering to meet and setting a timetable for those discussions to take place or is it from the first nations groups and other saying? Stop the blockades withdraw the blockades and we can have a conversation. So I think for one. One cents is probably. He's getting conflicting advice of what he needs to do. At this point he said that this was a critical moments not only for the country but presumably for his government as well. Just how much pressure does the Prime Minister Prime Minister who came into office talking about that nation to nation relationship talking about reconciliation. How much pressure does this moment? Put Him under particularly I think. He's under enormous pressure and he acknowledged that today. It's a critical moment for the country. But as you said when he talked about and stressed the importance of the nation to nation relationship. He's made reconciliation dealing with issues on first nations in first nations communities like the lack of affordable housing Lack of drinkable water. All of these things. He's put forward and tried to advance. So if there is a prolonged protests. Like we've already begun to see. It makes it more difficult. I suspect to make that argument to the rest of the country On the other hand if you don't continue to listen and to work into say that you understand that these aren't momentary events but are built on the fact that there has been a difficult path towards trying to negotiate land claims detriot acknowledge the first nations and indigenous communities role in this country That you also lose their face so it's a very difficult line. He now has to want Jagmeet. Singh leader of the EP was also speaking in the House of Commons and criticize the prime minister's leadership. Let's have a listen. There's a lot.

"Good morning my name's Matt Galloway. This is a special edition of the current. The Prime Minister is getting set to address the House of Commons this as the pipeline protests and rail blockades continue to spread across the country. We are waiting for him to take a stand in the House of Commons and Offer some sort of sense as to where the story is going to go from here. He's speaking right now. Let's have a listen to the Prime Minister Speaker? I'd like to begin by recognizing that we are on the ancestry. Land of the people. Mr Speaker people troubled by what they've been witnessing this past week young old indigenous newcomers. They're asking themselves what is happening in this country. They're asking what lies ahead for themselves for their communities for can't they know that these protests are serious that this is a critical moment for our country and for. Our Future. So Do I. On all sides people are upset and frustrated. Again it's understandable because this is about things that matter rights and livelihoods the rule of law and our democracy Gianatti this course against the about her. She d manifesto. We'll cover CD MA-MA if you see so she could have. I fall into the show not appeal. He Pacific we'll see what the issue could be. Calmer Nigga do what I don't do. It is time past time for this situation to be resolved but what we are facing was not created overnight it was not created because we have embarked upon a path of reconciliation recently in our history. It is because for too long in our history for too many years we failed to do so so finding the solution will not be simple. It will take determination hard work and cooperation. There is no relationship more important to Canada than the one with indigenous peoples and today as prime minister I am once again formally extending my hand in partnership and trust over the last eleven days our government has been working on a path forward even as many have been saying we should give up because we know what is at stake. We know that we cannot afford to fail for so we are creating a space for peaceful honest dialogue with willing partners as we heard this morning for Mohawk leaders and from national chief Perry Bell Guard we need to resolve this through dialogue and mutual respect to the what sweating and Mohawk nations and indigenous leaders across the country. We are listening. We are not asking that you stop standing up for your communities your rights and for what you believe we only ask that you be willing to work with the federal government as a partner in finding solutions you remind us rightly so the too often trust has been betrayed in the history of indigenous negotions nations with Canadian governments. In fact that underlines the difficulty of solving this situation today but are common. Ground is the desire to arrive at solutions. We cannot resolve this alone just like we need indigenous leaders to be partners. We also need Canadians to STU. Show both resolve and collaboration. Everyone has a stake in getting this right so I not concentrate avenues. You happy dependable two three huge. Don Posse kid points suggest you of Shaanxi happy.

Alma Arthur Hugh will because only about harsh to lease a new family not yellow over the weekend. The Minister of indigenous services met with representatives from Tonaga as well as other members of the Mohawk nation. And I have committed to the with sweat and hereditary chiefs that the minister of crown indigenous relations will meet with them anytime time and. I hope that the offer will be accepted. This is our opportunity now to bring these perspectives together. Because Mr Speaker. What is the alternative? Do we want to become a country of irreconcilable differences where people talk but refused to listen? We're politicians are ordering police to arrest people a country where people think they can tamper with rail lines and endanger live. This is simply unacceptable. We cannot solve these problems on the margins. That is not the way forward. I know that people's patience is running short. We need to find a solution. We need to find it now. I have spoken in this. House about how my father faced protests over the debate about aboriginal and Treaty Rights in the Constitution over thirty years later many of those questions still linger which is why our pace of change must be even faster and not only in this situation despite having invested more than any other government to write historic wrongs to close persistent gaps. We know that there is still more much more to be done. It is unacceptable that there are people who still don't have access to clean drinking water that indigenous women and girls still go missing and are murdered that there are people without housing and good education. It is unacceptable that indigenous peoples are still denied rights and lands Mr Speaker so we need to keep finding solutions and that can only happen by working together by. Listen I'LL KATHY SWAZILAND ACCESSORY? Sit Down New spin it. I guess you knew who was on gas. She does well new zone liquidity. Don't there are those who would want us to act in haste? Who want us to boil this down to slogans and ignore the click cities who think that using force is helpful it is not patients may be in short supply and that makes it more valuable than ever indigenous rights climate action law and order building clean economy. We will not achieve these things by degrading our up the honorable prime minister very serious topic that we're discussing today and I'm starting to hear heckling from both sides which really troubles me. I just want everyone to take a deep breath and listen to the speakers that we have. Today we have more coming down. We'll prime minister might repeat my last sentence. Patients may be in short supply and that makes it more valuable than ever Mr Speaker in this country. We're facing many important in deep debates debates about the future livelihoods of our children the future of our environment our relations with countries around the world are positioning on things that are fundamental at a time of anxiety and more and more. Canadians are impatient to see those answers. More and more people are frustrated that there is such uncertainty and more and more. We see those debates carried with increasing intensity on the margins of democratic conversations. The place for these debates is here in this health place in these. These debates are around kitchen tables and community centers in this country and yes. There is always a place for Canadians to protest and express their frustrations but we need to ensure that we are also listening to each other the reality of populism Mr Speaker and its Siren Song in our democracies. These days is that a desire to listen only to oneselves into people who agree with them and not with people of another perspective and the concern with action before discussion. The need for reasonable reason debate in this place is at the center of what we have to continue to move forward with as a country. Indigenous Rights Climate Action Law and order building a clean economy. We will not achieve these things by degrading our democracy. We must be honest about why we are here. We must be open to working together to move forward and not just in the days ahead but as we make progress on everything from implementing indigenous rights and title addressing historic wrongs and ending long-term drinking water advisories as a country and as a government. We need to continue the work we are doing and we need to continue to walk this road together to everyone. I say we are extending our hands in good faith for dialogue.

"Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday, notified the country's lawmakers intends to bring forward legislation to ratify the United States. Mexico Canada free trade agreement. US MCA, the deal that replaces NAFTA, Bloomberg news, reported the foreign minister introduced a ways and means motion in the house of Commons. The first step to getting the deal approved by the parliament, as I said, this isn't been talked about a lot, and, and who knows how long ratification process will take in Canada. But if Canada and Mexico, does it and the old up on the only hold up is the Democrats in congress. Trump can use that as timer. Yeah. I think that's something that will work to his advantage logically. Speaking. When you apply to. I'm sorry. I failed to say that. Well, given the, the, the behavior of the Democrats. I don't think that they feel they'll feel the pressure from those outside governments. The question is, will they feel the same pressure from their constituents? No, I think it can be used. I think Trump can use it effectively. I don't think the Democrats feel any pressure at all the only pressure would come from Trump continually talking about enduring a campaign for the presidential election, that this is something that eventually, they will have to address. And if you've got Canada and Mexico, both saying we wanted and were on board, and we agree with the president, and they're getting together, you know, they're getting together with joint statements from the president that we, you know, that, you know, we're ready to pass this, the president calls, Justin Trudeau and congratulate some calls the president of Mexico congratulates him for passing it. That's all media events, it can be used during campaign season, and then say we wished to have it here, but the Democrats in the house are stonewalling this effort. Yeah, you could probably make the photo ops happen at g twenty I'm guessing because he's already got to sit down with president Xi of China. There's no doubt is going to be sitting down with the, you know, with other leaders in the question is. Will there be that kind of opportunity, the, the stents will matter? And if he is standing there with Pinon ghetto, and well, if you still in power. Still around. But, but it will, I think that will make at least some difference will be enough political pressure at home for the Democrats to at all right now, big story over the weekend, maybe bit overblown the private part of the wall is being built. Yeah. That's like saying Eric went out and added to his backyard fence. I mean it's it's a half mile in private property. Yeah. That's about all you. It's not the wall. It's not the wall. So let's just be careful. I applaud anybody wants to do that. No doubt they own their land. They can make that decision themselves the impact of it overall as a the story that it was. It's an interesting story. We're taking our own funds to put up a wall where we think need one needs agreements, fine.

"Well let me ask you a political question though because you you you pointed out the to kind of imperatives getting along with america and representing canadian interests there was a poll last week that showed the approval rating for american leadership at twenty percent in canada now that's down from sixty a year ago i think it was a steepest drop of any country what political problems does that cause for you in trying to strike deals with the president of the united states i think and why do you think that is by the way that forty percent drop ira i'm i'm looking at the ill wonder about things but you'll canadians no no canadians know how important a good relationship with the united states is we know how much nafta has benefited canada but we also are very knowledgeable about how nafta's benefited the united states trump nine million jobs directly linked to trade with canada across the united states it's good for canada it's good for the united states and we are you legitimately concerned about the future of nafta because the president has said that he he's not sure that it's a good thing so when canadian see me up engaging constructively collaboratively but firmly at the negotiating table on nafta say look we we know there are ways to modernize and improve nafta in a way that will create a win win win when we include mexico there is a path absolutely for that but we are not going to take a win loss just for the sake of getting a deal and i've been very very clear we are going to expect a good deal a fair deal because quite frankly differences no country in the world that has a greater vested interest in the united states being successful then canada because no matter how good we're doing in canada if you're economy faces troubles we get to leo year when you sneeze we catch a cold i mean it's it's we're so interlinked that.

"Eddie that's out there that the politicians can make choices are on what to do with once you see that's there do you amplify that anxiety and try to use it for political gain or do you try and allay those fears with tangible solutions that are going to bring people together obviously the latter is much harder i it's harder when people are anxious to sue that anxiety and fix the problems then it would be to set yeah you're right you should be mad and yell the let's let's go get them or or whatever but i think dealing with citizens as informed intelligent rational actors who do understand the need for figuring out a tough path forward do understand the hard work that goes into building a better future is what liberal democracies must cling to to trust their citizens a little more to treat them like uh intelligent actors and not just people who respond to young kneejerk populism a and have that faith to to carry it through and genuinely listen to their fears and carry them with you in a way that isn't oh well know i went to a good school so i can tell you what the solution is no let me hear from you what you think the solution one of challenges is that social media such vat it is a tool for the arousal of these passions and manipulated we've seen of the russians very active um how bigger concern is out of yours just the manipulation of of of these tools that now exist to exacerbate divisions exacerbate resentments i think tools can be used for for bad or for gut that means certainly uh whether it was brock obama's election our election we used social media effectively as a way of bringing people together on day one of one of my in pieces actually my special adviser on lgbt issues at just actually said you know i was look.
