Mr. Speaker, recognizing human rights is not a zero-sum game. The parliamentarian should know that.
This is the same shameful rhetoric the Conservatives use when it comes to Bill C-51. It was denounced yesterday by the National Chief Perry Bellegarde. He said:
First Nations know better than anyone how easy it is for governments to ignore, erode and eradicate our most basic human rights and freedoms until you barely recognize the land you’re living in.
Why will the government not listen for once?
