"David Khan, leader of the Alberta Liberal Party and a constitutional and Indigenous rights lawyer, said Thursday the new law could interfere with Indigenous Peoples' rights to hunt, fish or gather on traditional land. 

He calls the law draconian, legally dubious and a piece of political theatre designed to trivialize the tensions between oil and gas development, Indigenous rights and the environment.
