That is the message Joe Dion, chairman and CEO of Frog Lake Energy Resources Corp., will be delivering on the second day of the Assembly of First Nations forum on energy.

"We need to look at how we can be a part of building this nation," said Dion.
That's how important we are as First Nations now," said Dion.
Dion says beyond giving approval for projects, First Nations need to benefit financially.
"We need to get revenues going to the communities as it has been going to governments and to industries. First Nations have not had that opportunity to see those revenues come to their communities," he said.
Dion says Frog Lake Energy Resources Corp., which is wholly owned by the First Nation, has been impacted by the drop in oil prices.
When prices turn around, Dion says FLERC will begin drilling new wells.

"Productional drainage" is a reality, says Joe Dion, chairman and CEO of Frog Lake Energy Resources Corp., which is wholly owned by the First Nation. "I know there's been that issue for a long time with First Nations."

Dion says that 15 years ago there was hardly any oil or gas activity on Frog Lake First Nation. Now the company leases and subleases reserve land for primarily oil development with partners both on and off the reserve.
One of the issues, says Dion, is although First Nations may sign over their oil and gas rights to the Crown with the understanding that development should be pursued, there is no way to guarantee development.
"One of the problems with right now is that Oil and Gas Canada doesn't have that capability to order companies to drill on the inside of the reserve," said Dion.
But that could be changing.
"There's a regulatory process happening right now that will allow OGC to do that," said Dion.
Dion says it is not his decision as to whether or not Frog Lake First Nation should join the class action lawsuit.
"Maybe this will get the governments to be more careful and to take action on these types of things going forward. There's always something positive that comes out of these types of (legal) actions," he said.
