I see my friend waving a sign about decriminalizing cannabis. I’ll take that as a question. I’m actually not in favor of decriminalizing cannabis – I’m in favor of legalizing it. Tax and regulate. It’s one of the only ways to keep it out of the hands of our kids because the current war on drugs, the current model is not working. We have to use evidence and science to make sure that we’re moving forward on that. Okay I’ve now started that, let’s take another couple of questions. Here we go.

Justin, Justin.

[Justin Trudeau:]
Here, we go we have a question.

Justin.

[Justin Trudeau:]
Go ahead.

You talked about the immigration and how Canada is built by immigrants. What do you say about the First Nations who have seen such really horrible treatment from the government, throughout the history of Canada?

[Justin Trudeau:]
I just got back from an extraordinary meeting with the Assembly of First Nations in Whitehorse where I had the honor of sitting down with a number of chiefs and activists from across the country to talk about a way forward for First Nations Community for Metis and Inuit as well. And it was interesting, I went up to this conference and as leader of the Liberal party, they said, well Justin please have a – when would like you to speak? And I said no, I’m here for three days, I’m not here to speak, I’m here to listen, I’m here to engage, I’m here to build a partnership, I’m here to build the kind of a relationship that we’re going to be able to work on. And I can’t stand here in the beautiful city of Kelowna and not talk about The Kelowna Accord.

A landmark needs to be for two reasons. It is a landmark accord, because – first of all, because it was a significant partnership, with significant money, with specific outcomes around capacity building that was an excellent deal at that point and it’s a shame the NDP and Conservatives worked together to kill it.

The second thing that’s important about Kelowna, is not even so much the words on the paper, as the process by which it was reached, it was 18 months of detailed negotiations, sitting down around a table, working together to generate solutions that were good for our First Nations people and driven by our First Nations people. That’s the level of respect that people rightly feel that this government is not offering to First Nations peoples and that’s what we have to reboot in terms of our relationship.

Thank you very much. I want to come around and meet you friends as many of you as I can. But I really, really am touched by your presence here today. And if you want to help out as I hope you all do, there are lots of forms you can sign up for, there are lots of ways of helping out. But mostly just become more and more involved and aware of what you deserve out of Federal politics. [“Merci beaucoup mes aime”].

Thank you.

Thank you.
