Motion text

That this House recognises the profound issues faced by the First Nations of the United States since European settlement; further recognises that members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe see the pipeline as a major environmental and cultural threat to the First Nations of the Americas; understands that historical and cultural reviews of the land where the pipeline will be buried were inadequate; notes that concerns of catastrophic and environmental damage if the pipeline to break near where it crosses under the Missouri River have not been considered; stands in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe; and calls on the Federal Government of the United States and State authorities to work with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and other First Nation Communities to bring an end to the long running stand off while respecting and upholding the cultural, economic and environmental wealth of local communities.
