REGINA — Since the federal Conservative government is unwilling to negotiate with Saskatchewan on equalization, David Karwacki says Ottawa should be billed $1.1 billion for failing to meet its obligation to First Nations people.
The leader of the Saskatchewan Liberals said Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the 12 Conservative MPs from the province reneged on their equalization promise to Saskatchewan. In turn, they must be held accountable for their constitutional responsibility to the province’s First Nations people.
