QP: Ashton Calls on Federal Government to Stand Up for First Nations Constitutional Rights

The Liberal Government must stand up for OPCN and TCN in the face of the Manitoba Government’s decision to issue a final license to Manitoba Hydro without the required section 35 consultation and accommodation.

Instead of stepping in to support First Nations as they did with the historic Northern Flood Agreement - the Minister couldn’t even answer the question in Question Period.

First Nations deserve action now.
