Barry Vickers discusses a groundbreaking development: 16 First Nation communities in B.C. have negotiated the option to purchase a 10% equity stake in the Coastal GasLink pipeline. Vickers is director of project development with the First Nations Major Projects Coalition, and a member of Saik'uz First Nation. He discusses the sometimes tough negotiations to get the deal done, and what it means to Indigenous communities to be owners of major projects that go through their territories: helping to bring about change, prosperity and economic reconciliation.
