Indigenous leaders say they had little time to talk to Trudeau and premiers
The Globe and Mail | October 03, 2017
Indigenous leaders who were given a brief opportunity to lay their issues before Canada's First Ministers say they are frustrated with the small amount of time devoted to their concerns and they expect more discussion and real progress in the months ahead.
Representatives of the First Nations, the Inuit and the Métis met for a little more than an hour on Tuesday morning with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and provincial premiers before the First Ministers met in private to discuss the economy.
The leaders of the Indigenous organizations said after the meeting that they were pleased to have time with the federal and provincial leaders, but the reconciliation they have been promised is too slow in coming.
It's obviously not perfect, but it's happening.
