April 3, 1998 (36th Parliament, 1st Session)


Myron Thompson


Mr. Myron Thompson (Wild Rose, Ref.)

Mr. Speaker, the government is ignoring the people. It is not the inquiry we are talking about. We are talking about the conditions on the reserve.
Connie Jacobs probably did not donate a lot of money to the Liberal Party, nor golf with the Prime Minister, nor fly with him across the country on trade missions. I do not think she ran in the federal Liberal election.
Chief Roy Whitney does not want an investigation. He is the close friend. He does not want an investigation into the economic, social and democratic conditions on his reserve. Of course not.
Why is the minister listening to Chief Whitney instead of Connie Jacobs' family?
