Prime minister slights two indigenous organizations from ministers meeting
Several leaders, indigenous and Canadian spoke out today after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau left two indigenous organizations out of the First Ministers Meeting on Climate Change.
In his promises to facilitating a nation to nation relationship with First Nations people – Trudeau promised to work with the five nationally recognized indigenous institutions.
Invitations were extended to the Assembly of First Nations, the Metis National Council and Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami — however the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples and the Native Women’s Association of Canada were not invited.
NDP Leader Tom Mulcair said there is no excuse for leaving out two of the five groups and says Trudeau should issue an apology.
