Be a partner, not impediment
Re: Feds Helped Save FNTI: Kramp – April 3.

There must not be enough oxygen in the high elevations at the back of the House of Commons. Our MP, Daryl Kramp seems to be suffering from dysfunctional thinking. By his reckoning, cutting the federal funding to First Nations Technical Institute (FNTI) by $2 million and then offering $500,000 to help them shut down, is a reprieve to FNTI. Mr. Kramp, they would still be $1.5 million short of being able to operate! I assume the submitted business plan was quite clear about this.

Three day conference gathers 350 people from around the world to discuss student access and success

Although Canada has made progress in expanding the number of students pursuing post-secondary education, there are still major hurdles for many, says Norman Riddell, CEO of the Canadian Millennium Scholarship Foundation. “That progress is uneven; some segments of our society do not have access,” he said in his opening remarks at an international post-secondary education conference this week.

Consulting First Nations first – Canadian Mining Journal

Consulting First Nations first

By: Marilyn Scales

We at CMJ have written recently about the conflicts between Aboriginal peoples and the mining industry. And we have been taken to task by some readers when they think we would further disenfranchise native bands. That has never been our intention. Instead, we have tried to point out how contentious these issues are. To say that a dispute that lands people in jail is “contentious” is an understatement.
