Budget 2016 InFocus: Calculating the value of Indigenous languages and the culture of election promises

Putting the focus on a different kind of political discussion about the federal budget

APTN InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie:

The Liberals have budgeted fifty-five million dollars per year for five years for language revitalization and culture for First Nations.

In this edition our guests share their opinions on the political calculations that go into putting a dollar value on Indigenous languages.

We also discuss the fallout and implications after politicians make promises on the election trail but then don’t follow through.
