The Indigenous Resource Network (IRN) recently commissioned an Environics poll to assess cross-Canada Indigenous support for natural resource development. What they found defies the common perception in the media: 65% supported development vs only 23% opposed.
Energy Examined chats with John Desjarlais and JP Gladu of the IRN about the findings and how sustainable natural resource development is seen as a key source of jobs, business opportunities and self determination among many Indigenous communities.
The Indigenous Resource Network is an Indigenous-run organization providing a platform for Indigenous workers, business owners and leaders who support Indigenous engagement in the resource sector.
