blackbird Posted March 27 Report Share Posted March 27 Can hardly believe. Just came across an article which points out that government and departments like pipeline authorities or impact assessment authority are required to give "indigenous knowledge" and science equal weight in their decision-making. The Federal government website even says that much. "Both Indigenous Knowledge, including oral knowledge, and western scientific knowledge systems are equally valued. When it is considered with other knowledge systems, including western science, the integrity of Indigenous Knowledge will be maintained." Indigenous Knowledge Policy Framework for Project Reviews and Regulatory Decisions - Canada.ca Yet apparently nobody is able to define what indigenous knowledge is.

I just hope they are aware of it. The one hazard is they will be accused of racism. That is the go-to accusation that is always used against opponents be it China interference or anything else.
