Former prime minister Jean Chrétien’s comments on Attawapiskat stirred quite a few emotions this week.

Chrétien, who as Indian Affairs minister in the late 1960’s, tabled the controversial “White Paper” that would end the special legal rights between Canada and status Indians.

This week he was asked about the crisis unfolding in Attawapiskat and quipped that sometimes people have to move.

And that got APTN’s viewers writing in.
