Conservative leader Andrew Scheer, who is the only party leader pitching a large, new energy project as part of his platform, doubled down on his opposition to the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples during the federal election debate Monday evening.

Scheer said he would focus on consulting Indigenous communities before building his proposed national energy corridor, but he would not be guided by UNDRIP — an international document that sets minimum standards for nation states' interaction with Indigenous peoples.

Scheer and People's Party of Canada leader Maxime Bernier were the only party leaders who didn't express support for UNDRIP. Bernier didn't mention it at all.
