Hon. Thomas Siddon (Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development):

Mr. Speaker, I wrote last week to the minister of native affairs for the province of

Ontario and Chief Potts of the Teme-Augama Anishna-bai band arising out of the finding of the Supreme Court of Canada in 1991 that the treaty rights of the Teme-Augama Anishnabai had been adequately dealt with by way of the Robinson-Huron treaty which was signed over a century ago and that any further disputes between the province of Ontario and the Teme-Augama Anishnabai could be dealt with by the negotiation of a treaty between those two parties and that the federal government would deal with any outstanding claims against us through our specific claims policy.

Those negotiations should proceed between the two other parties.
