Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  I could, but you would probably prefer that I didn't, so perhaps this will suffice: “Once more unto the breach” is maybe the closest I could get to responding positively to your request.

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  It was more because we knocked on the door of the communities to find out what we needed to ask the Treasury Board. The board responded almost immediately once the request was made.

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  In terms of the time it'll take, that will depend on what the communities ask for, because it could be a broad range of things. We'll be there to support them immediately. There are help supports that have been made available already to deal with some of the immediate issues, and

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  There have over time been a number of efforts made, though not as co-ordinated and not on a national scale like this.

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  I'm not able to speak to the details of why the decision might have been made at that point in time. I know that, obviously, the request was made and the decision was made not to provide the funds. This issue is certainly one we are committed to addressing and resolving. There

Indigenous and Northern Affairs committee  The federal government has turned over all the documents it has and made them available. Those are part of the records that are currently being held.
