There are a lot of hot button issues on the table for Ontario’s new premier.

Kathleen Wynne is the province’s former Aboriginal affairs minister.

With mining development worth billions of dollars set to take place in the traditional territory of several First Nations across northern Ontario, Wynne has her work cut out for her.

APTN National News reporter Delaney Windigo sat down with the premier to find out how she plans to sooth growing tensions between First Nations and industry.

  1. With respect Premier. Effective April 1, 2013 you and your government have illegally obligated industry and the public to consult First Nations before accessing mineral claims on public land in Ontario.

    Here you have admitted there are no terms of reference for consultation. In other words you have no definition so my open question is how can you enforce such obligation on industry and the public when you have no standard.

    Your government knows full well that this downloading of the Crowns duty is illegal based on the Supreme Court of Canada ruling. (Haida 2004).

    Your plan is doomed. First Nations have requested that you suspend these obligations
    and industry will soon find its voice too.

    Stop BS ing about the Ring of Fire until you fix Lake Abitibi.
