Kill Education Bill Now Says Chief Patrick Madahbee

The Minister of Indian Affairs shouldn’t be delaying his proposed First Nations education legislation, says Anishinabek Nation Grand Council Chief Patrick Madahbee. He should be disposing of the badly-flawed bill right now. “First Nations have been developing their own systems for years and we don’t need the Minister of Indian Affairs looking over our shoulders,” says Madahbee, responding to Indian Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt’s statement that Bill C-33 (the First Nations Control of First Nations Education Act) would be put on hold until the Assembly of First Nations clarifies its position. First Nation opposition to Bill C-33 is pretty clear,” says Madahbee. “Our people have told their leaders they don’t want Stephen Harper or Bernard Valcourt dictating how First Nations children should be educated.”
