First Nations left out of provincial economic growth plans
Ontario Regional Chief Isadore Day expressed his disappointment over the Ontario budget, saying on many fronts it failed to include First Nations communities.
Day said while there are positives to the 350 page report, the budget failed to provide funding for the current child welfare crisis or include Ontario First Nations communities in infrastructure spending to combat climate change through green energy and environmental protection initiatives.
The province has yet to implement promised resource revenue sharing with Ontario First Nations.
Day said doing so would generate revenue contributing to the provinces economic growth.
