APTN InFocus with Cheryl McKenzie:
The Quebec Native Women’s Association has been fighting for the rights of its members for forty years.
But now they’ve learned the federal government no longer considers them an Aboriginal Representative Organization (ARO).
There have been lay-offs and more people could lose their jobs as the effect of the budget cut sinks in.
And they’re not alone.
Our guests, Mary Hannaburg, Russ Diabo, Niigaanwewidam Sinclair and Diane Roussin give their take on why there is a growing struggle to represent.
