Mr. Speaker, quite frankly I find it appalling that this minister will not do what Connie's family wants.
Grassroots aboriginals know what is going to happen if the inquiry on the conditions on the Tsuu T'ina reserve is left to the Assembly of First Nations. It will be a whitewash, a glossing over of all the problems. The Assembly of First Nations is not a court. It is not an impartial government agency. It is a large organization, a political organization very close to the Liberal Party.
Why does the minister always side with the chiefs and never with the grassroots? When is she going to do what Connie's family has asked her to do?
