Thank you for making that point.
You really have to look at this from a lens. In our first nations community, we know our people, and I think we work hard to put an end to child and family violence. When you look at the hunter.... I'm coming from a perspective where you put food on the table, and the wild meat, the diet, is part of the culture. I don't think dangerous offenders or.... I work towards harsher laws for perpetrators who commit crimes against indigenous women and girls. The other bill that we're trying to get through is Bill S-215, Senator Lillian Dyck's bill.
Background checks could be in terms of maybe five years, but going back 20 years...because in terms of our culture and community, we work towards reconciliation. I think this is where you look to the nation. We know our people. I know in my first nation, the chief and council have banned certain individuals from hunting for certain transgressions, but like I said, leave it to the communities. That's their jurisdiction.
