Mr. Speaker, I thank the member for her commitment and contributions at committee on this very difficult and important issue.
This really is a bill about jurisdiction. For the longest time, since the beginning of Canada, indigenous child welfare was under federal jurisdiction. Provinces have been involved for a long time, and many people respect provincial jurisdiction. The nub of the issue is really the inherent jurisdiction of indigenous nations to make their own laws and take care of their own children.
I wonder if the member would offer her comments on just that, the inherent jurisdiction of indigenous nations to make their own laws.
Result: 1 - 1 of 1
