It's also indicated by one expert report that a number of communities that wanted to proceed with indigenous policing were turned down or couldn't do it because of unavailability of resources.
How do we actually get there from here? How does a community go from being in a particular situation now to actually having an indigenous police service? How does that process work?
Chief Picard, maybe you could tell us what you think, from your perspective, of the AFN in Quebec and others.
