Manitoba Metis Federation President’s Message – April 3, 2009

Snow, rain and water – lots of water. Back in 1997, the Red River flooded many people out of their homes. But the good side of humanity that happened then is happening again today. The spirit of Manitobans to help their fellow citizens is amazing. People are driving into flood-risk areas and helping out people they do not even know. Neighbours are working hand-in-hand with neighbours to save the places they call home.

Total disregard for a relationship that’s lasted thousands of years – (The Innu Newfoundland Government confrontation)

WENDAKE, QC, April 2 – The Assembly of First Nations of Quebec and Labrador (AFNQL) is once again concerned that a provincial government is demonstrating a total disregard for First Nations rights. In 2008 the Newfoundland government had threatened to destroy Innu camps because of non compliance with provincial regulations. This has been the Innu homeland for thousands of years and Innu title and rights upon these territories are not extinguished. These title and rights are not subject to restriction by provincial boundaries or provincial hunting regulations and as such the Innu hunt is not illegal as stated by the Newfoundland government. The Innu were never consulted on the state of the caribou. It is senseless that such decisions are made and those, whose culture and existence which has been so intertwined with the caribou for millennia were not duly consulted.

Submission of A Petition concerning Post-secondary Education

OTTAWA, April 1 – The First Nations Education Council (FNEC) is today submitting its petition on the funding of First Nations post-secondary education to the House of Commons. This petition was officially launched on November 14, 2008 in reaction to the revision by Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) of the Post-Secondary Student Support Program (PSSSP) without the participation of the First Nations, who now fear that the possibility of post-secondary education for First Nations students has been compromised. In just a few months, the petition surpassed its objective of 10,500 signatures. The figure of 10,500 was set because it corresponds to the number of students on wait lists. The petition has now obtained more than 23,000 signatures from people throughout Canada.

2009 March Report of the Auditor General of Canada

Message from the Auditor General of Canada—Status Report 2009

The Status Report tabled today revisits seven issues that have been discussed in my recent reports or those of the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development. Status reports are tabled once a year and are a way for us to find out—and for parliamentarians to assess—whether government organizations are meeting commitments they made in response to our previous recommendations. In doing so, we re-audit selected recommendations and findings from prior reports to determine if progress in addressing them has been satisfactory. When we make that determination, we consider the time elapsed since our original report and the complexity and degree of difficulty of remedial action by government.

Newfoundland and Labrador Speech from the Throne 2009

Executive Council
March 25, 2009

The following is the Speech from the Throne delivered at the Opening of the Second Session of the Forty-Sixth General Assembly of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador on Wednesday, March 25, 200,9 by His Honour The Honourable John C. Crosbie, PC, OC, ONL, QC, Lieutenant Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador:

Tragedy at Sea

Mr. Speaker and Members of the House of Assembly: Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, and our friends around the world, are embracing the families and dear friends of the sixteen men and the woman who perished in the terrible crash at sea of the helicopter that was carrying workers to our offshore oil fields. Taken from us too suddenly and too soon, these seventeen fine individuals leave behind brokenhearted children, grieving partners and parents, best friends, closely-knit communities and a province that will be forever marked by their loss. Amid the heartbreak, our spirits were lifted as we learned that one young man, a gifted mariner named Robert Decker, was pulled to safety from the frigid waters and returned to the warm embrace of his loved ones. But as our hopes for the others fell with the gathering darkness, so did our tears. How many times have we as Newfoundlanders and Labradorians cast our grief-stricken gaze across the ocean that has claimed those we dearly love? How many fishermen and other mariners across the centuries have lost their lives in these waters while providing for those they love? The Ocean Ranger tragedy 27 years ago and so many other tragedies remain fresh in our memories and remind us of the perils our people face to provide for their families. In the weeks ahead, we will cooperate with those who are working to determine how this happened and how to make these noble occupations safer.
