Michael Lee's Commitment to Indigenous People

Join us and share on social media

Michael Lee recognizes Indigenous title and rights, and respects the desire of Indigenous people for sustainable economic development, and to maintain their social, cultural, and spiritual identities.  

Michael Lee supports the efforts of Indigenous communities to achieve full self-sufficiency.

A Michael Lee government will be guided by a process for meaningful dialogue and consultation, in the spirit of consent, to achieve sustainable partnerships with Indigenous governments.

Principles for Partnership:

  1. I believe in the inherent rights of all Indigenous people to remain distinct and to practice their beliefs.
  2. I believe that the Government of BC has a role in implementing the Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
  3. I believe in government-to-government dialogue and acknowledge that each government can be separate and distinct, and that government policy needs to acknowledge the diversity of all Indigenous governments.
  4. I believe that BC’s future requires stronger and more meaningful partnership, sharing in the wealth of the land and sea, and acknowledge that both the history and future of Indigenous people needs to be self-determined.
