Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, I would have to disagree with the hon. member in that it is very clear on how it is laid out.

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, it was very interesting last week at the first ministers' meeting on the status of women to see the brilliant presentation from B.C.

Carolyn BennettLiberal

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, I think the question speaks to the fact that having agencies and bodies looking after families has not worked. What we are seeing is that communities, whether it is a treaty nation or individual nations, write their own laws and they will look after their own childre

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, the whole excitement about this new approach is that it will not be designed top-down, and that the plans will be built bottom-up by communities, for communities and in the best interests of their children and youth, to keep families together and to bring their child

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Chair, yes. I think that everything that we understand about free, prior and informed consent is that indigenous people and the rights-holders have to be at the very first idea of a project and be able to give their best advice, their indigenous knowledge, in order to move

Supplementary Estimates (A), 2019-20  Madam Speaker, I will have to check with Health Canada, which tests these systems.
