Hello, my name is Brendan Campbell. I am Plains/Woodland Cree and Métis, and I have European decent. I was born and raised in Regina, Saskatchewan, but I live in Peterborough, Ontario on the lands of the Michi Saagig Anishinaabeg. I am a student here.

Ultimately, as a delegate, I feel that regardless of the success or content of COP 22, it's about the communities in which we find ourselves. So it is with a sense of humility, responsibility, and accountability that I attend as a Nogojiwanong community member and a Treaty 6 Cree.

I join the Canadian Youth Delegation with the commitment to indigenous youth and teachings and as a means to amplify their voice and concerns. Often, in discussions about climate change and mitigation efforts, the voice of indigenous peoples is often ignored, forgotten and lost.

My main interests in the counter-narrative we as youth can provide at COP 22 are (1) to support or amplify the nation-to-nation relationship discussion the current federal government is struggling to develop, and (2) address and challenge the environmental racism, for which governments are responsible.
