Mr. Speaker, where we have arrived at in this country requires us to talk with respect. When leaders in the opposition can talk respectfully about indigenous issues, I will applaud that. I do not feel that there has been respectful discussion by the Leader of the Opposition. I heard his comments today and I heard his comments when he was presenting in front of the Assembly of First Nations last year. When he was asked by the chiefs if he could differentiate himself from Stephen Harper, he could not. He doubled down and said Stephen Harper was not so bad to indigenous people. He was booed out of the room.
If that member opposite spent a little more time listening to some of the talk by the chiefs and hereditary chiefs, perhaps he would be invited when our Prime Minister sits down and talks about what is best for all Canadians, including indigenous peoples.
