Mr. Speaker, the custom codes of first nations have been in place for almost 100 years. I find it quite surprising that the member just realized that there are different systems of governance on first nations.
The first nations governance legislation would allow first nations to develop the kind of governance structures they need within the democratic principles that our society accepts.
I will give the member the respectful answer for which he is looking. He is in committee now. If he would show up from time to time, he could make these presentations to the committee.
