Federal Budget Falls Short

FEDERAL BUDGET FALLS SHORT OF NAN EXPECTATIONS

 THUNDER BAY, ON: Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) Grand Chief Stan Beardy stated that although the federal government announced increased funding for specific First Nation priorities, it does little to renew the relationship the federal government committed to at the Crown-First Nations Gathering.

 “This budget signals that the federal government is hearing us but not really listening,” said Beardy. “The investments in First Nations are a good start, but it does not adequately address the shortfalls that plague our communities.”
