Mr. Speaker, Canada's aboriginal population is young, dynamic and growing, but it has been abandoned by the Conservatives.
Thirty per cent of the aboriginal population is younger than 14, but the high school graduation rate is under 40%.
Yesterday, when we asked the minister about this, he was unable to answer.
He was not able to explain why his department systematically underfunds first nations education.
Let us try again today. Can the minister explain why 48 aboriginal communities are still waiting for their schools to be built?
