Mr. Speaker, I do not agree with that. In fact, I say so every year when the Indian affairs minister comes before the standing committee. I ask him “Are you not tired of letting the courts tell you how to proceed?” It seems to me this government should display greater courage and settle fundamental issues, before the courts force it to change its policies.
I agree with the hon. member that the Liberal government should show much more initiative, to avoid having Canadian courts, and particularly the supreme court, tell us how to proceed.
