‘To be able to walk into that building, shut it off so that way it does not cause any more detrimental harm’

A Nova Scotia Mi’kmaw chief wants more Indigenous oversight of the proposed Alton natural gas storage project near Stewiacke, N.S. — including the power to shut down operations.
Millbrook Chief Bob Gloade made the assertion before a Canadian Senate committee meeting last week.
The hearing was about marine protected areas, but Gloade spoke also about Indigenous participation in environmental monitoring.
He said via videolink from Nova Scotia that First Nations should have the ability and the authority “to stop something if they see something that’s going to have a detrimental effect.”
