Yes. The delineation here, again, is that the Métis community is absorbed by the mainstream. There is no land tenure. There are no treaties. There are no Indian Act issues to address. Much of our problem is the Indian Act. There is going to need to be, for us.... My response will be that, no, it's too fast. We're not ready. We simply will not be ready.
I think it's really important for the federal government and this committee to make the strong suggestion that we need to understand what the impacts are. That's the theme of my presentation, impacts to public health. We need to look at prevention. We also need to look at law enforcement and, overall, the socio-economic impacts in the strategy going forward. That front-end work simply hasn't been done in the context of first nations in Canada in response to dealing with the issues, the systemic problems with the Indian Act and the Indian residential school legacy.
