Alberta’s Indigenous relations minister says a last-minute war of words with a First Nations leader over a multibillion-dollar oilsands mine is a case of bare-knuckle bargaining.
Rick Wilson says he hopes the spat with Athabasca Chipewyan Chief Allan Adam doesn’t hurt a federal decision on whether to green light the $20.6-billion Teck Resources Frontier project in northern Alberta.
“Not everybody is going to agree to everything… We all have to have some differences. And Chief Allan is not opposed to the [Teck] project.”
Wilson said there is “a little bit” of a concern that the public disagreement could give the federal government a reason to reject the oilsands project.
