Bennett fails to calm fears over government’s emerging rights framework

 

The Minister of Crown-Indigenous Relations Carolyn Bennett spoke at a forum hosted by the Assembly of First Nations forum called First Nations Rights, Title and Jurisdiction in Gatineau, Que. Tuesday.

The main subject of her speech was the upcoming Recognition and Implementation of Indigenous Rights Framework.

It is proposed legislation Canada says it will put First Nation rights into law.

But there are many skeptics who don’t trust what the Trudeau government is doing.

Bennett was doing her best to calm those fears.

  1. Be very careful of what you sign, this Government has proven to be unethical and act in ways that are not in the best interest of all Canadians and have only given token acts of responsibility now there is another election coming up. Conservative Governments have done more in ratification of First Nation land and honouring self government with out trying to rewrite the Indian Act. Please don’t be bought by small guestures that disguise Trudeau’s evilness.
