The Ottawa – Assembly of the First National Chief Perry Belegrarde has a pointed message for federal politicians: listen to first national origins, or else.
Bellegarde says the First Nations voters are responsible for flipping 22 retweets in the 2015 federal election and candidates next year's election has better attendance to the first necesary needs and demands.
Belegle spoke in the Assembly of the First Nations' Special Species Assemblies in Ottawa today.
He talked about putting his organization down – closing the gap & # 39; Document in front of each party during the last federal election. It expressed the priorities of everything from the environment to indigenous languages and he said that it sent the message that they had better part of a party's platform if it wanted power.
Bellegarde says he wants to see a few keys of laws passed before the House rises in June, including the long-awaited indigenous languages act, recently known as Child Welfare Law and NDP MP Romeo Saganash's private member's bill, which seeks to ensure The laws of Canada are in line with the United Nations Declaration on the Right of Indigenous Peoples.
He also talked about Climate Change and asked the chiefs and delegates to support a carbon tax as one way to get it off.
