Mr. Speaker, B.C. native leaders have been asking for help for two years from the Conservative government.
Last week they came to Ottawa to plead with the government for help with the pine beetle infestation. More than 100 aboriginal communities, already reeling from forestry job losses, are living in fear as the forest fire season approaches.
When will the minister finally help these communities, or will the government fumble this crisis the same way it has others, laissez-faire, too little too late?
