National Inquiry or National Disgrace? Trudeau’s Next Step is Critical

Before being elected Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau told Canadians and First Nations that there was no more important relationship to him than the one with Indigenous peoples. To this end, he promised to engage with First Nations on a Nation-to-Nation basis where free, informed and prior consent means a veto. Once elected, he reiterated his promises:
(1)Engage in a Nation-to-Nation relationship with First Nations;
(2)Lift the 2% cap in First Nations education;
(3)Review and repeal all the legislation former Prime Minister Harper imposed on First Nations without their consent;
(4)Implement all 94 Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Report, which includes implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP); and
(5)Complete a national inquiry on murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls.
