Mr. Speaker, the minister's bumbling and confrontational approach to Attawapiskat just got worse. He had the chance to mend his broken relationship with the community and now they are going to court. His claim that they need a third party Indian agent to deliver homes that were already ordered just does not wash.
Attawapiskat is not looking for handouts. It is not looking for confrontation, and it certainly is not going to pay for a gold-plated warden who is sent there to punish the community for having the nerve to speak up.
Why does the government continue to use the tactics of confrontation against this impoverished community?
