Mr. Speaker, in 1953 the Primrose bombing range that straddles both Alberta and Saskatchewan was established.
This huge tract of land that was reserved for the DND displaced the aboriginal people from their basic hunting and fishing rights.
The promised economic opportunities have not been beneficial for the people of northwestern Saskatchewan. The issues for the Metis elders and their communities, which have been directly affected by this loss, have not been resolved.
Will the minister responsible for Canada's Metis commit today to expedite a meeting with the Primrose negotiating committee to resolve these injustices?
