Hi there tout la gang,

but we are talking policy and practice over here now: Literacy Enquirers.

Today is the Aboriginal Day of Action.
On May 31, the Assembly of First Nations Chief Phil Fontaine made three core demands of the government:

  • rapid movement toward self-government agreements on the basis of an AFN plan;
  • restoration and expansion of federal funding to First Nations' organizations, removing 2% annual funding caps, implementing the $5 billion Kelowna Accord, and building population growth and inflation into future funding formulas; and
  • accelerated resolution of over 800 outstanding specific claims.

I hope that the day helps us move towards meeting those demands.

I hope that everybody stays safe.

I hope that we all remember our rights and responsibilities as inheritors of the treaties.
