I take issue and umbrage with the position of Sen. Patrick Brazeau writing in his views critical of Amnesty International as a senator, a Conservative and, as he puts it, also an aboriginal. Is the true aboriginal identity found in the halls of Parliament or is it in the spirit of place in the living land aboriginals have protected for centuries?

First Nation Fraud Case Encouraging

September 10, 2010 (AV083)

In Brief:
•A fraud case involving treaty land entitlement trustees on a Saskatchewan First Nation illustrates the fight against corrupt governance on First Nations is far from over.
•Band members across are caught between the desire for financial independence and the loss of protections other Canadians enjoy.
•Indian Affairs says band members and leaders must deal with corruption, which is easier said than done as elected leaders have power over the lives of members.
•Having charges laid on corrupt leaders is a good step on the way to First Nation democracy.
