Mr. Speaker, my leader is a great one, and he is going in the right direction.
Last night at the committee of the whole, we did not see a minister who seemed to know much or care much about aboriginal people.
From 2006, the government promised reconciliation with aboriginal peoples. Last January, in the face of nation-wide protests, the Prime Minister promised to provide direct oversight to put the relationship between our peoples back on track. Yesterday it was obvious that he had placed this responsibility with someone who is not taking it very seriously.
Is this the new relationship that was promised?
