Transcript: The Wetum Road: Isadore Day | Jul 15, 2021

A man speaks in a TV studio.
A caption reads "Isadore Day. Ontario Regional Chief. Assembly of First Nations."
Isadore is in his late forties, clean-shaven, with short graying black hair.

He says WE'RE THE FIRST TO FEEL
CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACTS
IN THE NORTH. AND AS
A RESULT OF THAT,
OUR VOICE AT THE
TABLE IS PARAMOUNT
FOR THE ACTUAL IMPACTS
IN HOW POLICY MUST BE SET.
WHAT I'VE BEEN PRESSING
THE ONTARIO GOVERNMENT ON
AND THE FEDERAL
GOVERNMENT IS...
LET'S DO THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC
IMPACT ON CLIMATE CHANGE.
WHAT THIS IS GOING TO DO
IS IT'S GONNA BRING CURRENT
ALL THE STUDIES THAT HAVE
BEEN DONE WITH RESPECT TO
ALL SEASON ROADS.
IT'S GONNA LOOK AT
WHERE WE CAN
ACTUALLY INCORPORATE,
WHERE WE CAN INVEST IN
IN ALTERNATIVES AT THE MOMENT.
