  • Spoke about Aboriginal Affairs

    Mr. Speaker, obviously we are aware of the fact that some communities send their students to cities and towns for education. We are working through those processes now. Those schools received their tuition. What is important is that those aboriginal students have access to a good education so they can enter the workforce equipped as all other Canadians come to expect, whether they live on reserve or off reserve.

  • Mary, I do understand that. I was just using it as an example of some efforts that have been made on a bigger scale.

  • Mary, it would be great if we could—or I'd like to—understand more about this handbook. I think I would benefit from it. I don't know whether that's something that's submitted through the committee. I believe firmly in this notion of programs and services when right now thematically we're looking at root causes. It strikes me that what you're framing here goes to those root causes. What might not be obvious to some folks is very clear to me, and even more clear now, when you're saying that there are a number of ways—through handbooks, through cultural competency forums, if you will, of various types, and cultural camps—that issues around self-identity, cultural awareness, and the guiding principles of the traditions of a specific community can be more focused on, as they are or have been in the projects and research that you've done. ... more

  • Spoke about Regional Economic Development

    Mr. Speaker, it was our government that was proactive in working hand in hand, in full co-operation with communities implicated in the Ring of Fire. In fact, I visit Webequie First Nation with the Minister of the Environment. We saw a small business centre there. We saw first nations elders and youth and a college-diploma first nations person doing cultural mapping for the development of the Ring of Fire. We saw a busy base supplying materials for the Ring of Fire activity. ... more
