Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Minister of Indian Affairs.
The Royal Commission on Aboriginal People finally produced its report on suicide among young natives. The situation is disastrous. Young natives commit suicide at a rate eight times higher than young non-natives. The Pikangikum and Davis Inlet reserves are tragic examples of this.
Does the minister recognize the seriousness of the problem and what drastic measures does he intend to take to deal with this problem?
