I'll be quick.
I really like the section on paid leave for traditional aboriginal practices. As a person who has worked with aboriginal people my whole life, I know that when the geese are flying, when the fish run is on, or when it's moose season, that's usually the time when we lose a lot of aboriginal employees.
I'm curious because I know that moose hunting.... I'm the only Liberal MP that lives in an aboriginal community, I believe. My relatives and the elders in my community probably could take just a couple of days to go get a moose or a caribou, whereas if it were me, it might take more than five days or a couple of weeks maybe. My skill level is not the same.
Anyway, I'm curious as to how the department consulted with indigenous Canadians when it determined that the five days of leave was the number for traditional aboriginal practices.
