A Message from Kristine Pearson

Hello from the Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee. My name is Kristine Pearson, representing the Western Approach, coming from Pacheedaht First Nation.

I was selected to sit on the Indigenous Caucus as the Interim Member for the Western Approach, at a Regional Meeting held in Sooke in June 2017. Some of you were there to represent your communities along the shipping lanes associated with the Trans Mountain Expansion (TMX).

There are 11 Indigenous members, as well as six senior representatives from federal departments and the National Energy Board, on the IAMC.

IAMC is not a pro-pipeline committee. Indigenous members’ participation is “without prejudice,” meaning it doesn’t indicate support or opposition to TMX. We sit with the federal regulators for information sharing, discussion and recommendations.

Our immediate goal is to make the TMX project as safe as possible and to lessen the impacts on environmental and Indigenous interests.

I also work on IAMC’s Marine Shipping Subcommittee. We’re currently focused on all the policies and information regarding the marine aspect of TMX, such as the Oceans Protection Plan.

Feel free to share this report with your communities, and please reach out to me on any questions or concerns. Look forward to meeting with you all.

On May 05, the IAMC-TMX is observing Red Dress Day, also known as the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and Two-Spirit People (MMIWG2S). The IAMC-TMX Socioeconomic Subcommittee is collaborating with Natural Resources Canada, the lead department for UNDA Action Plan Measure 12, to better understand and respond to the ongoing gendered and racialized violence against Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQIA+ people associated with the resource sector. On this important day, we encourage all Canadians to continue educating themselves about the MMIWG Calls for Justice and support MMIWG events in their local area.

The Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee for Trans Mountain (IAMC-TMX) welcomes Budget 2024's investment in our continued work. We'll continue to work on shared goals of safety and protection of environmental and Indigenous interests regarding lands and water.

International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, March 21, recognizes past and present injustices and prejudices founded in racial discrimination, including the ongoing social and economic repercussions for Canada’s Indigenous peoples. The IAMC-TMX Socioeconomic Subcommittee (SESC) is committed to surfacing issues related to racial discrimination, including as this links to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people, in the context of resource development activities. We show up for this work daily through direct engagement with Indigenous communities, research focused on Indigenous Peoples experience with the Trans Mountain Expansion Project, and our ongoing support to Indigenous communities building strengths in the area of socioeconomic monitoring. https://www.mmiwg-ffada.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Executive_Summary.pdf

Participation in the Committee does not indicate that a community supports or opposes the TMX Project www.iamc-tmx.com/faq/other-links-for-project-information/ #EnvironmentalProtection #IndigenousCollaboration #ClimateAction #IndigenousWisdom #SustainableFuture
