Press Statement, December 13, 2016
Ottawa — 

"I am very pleased with yesterday's decision of the Specific Claims Tribunal in support of the claim by Huu-ay-aht First Nations for compensation for logging on their lands. This decision is a tribute to Huu-ay-aht leaders, over six decades, for their courage and their resolve to fairly settle this matter. I urge the government of Canada to implement this decision without delay, in the spirit of reconciliation.”
