February 4, 1992

Mrs. Lise Bourgault (Argenteuil-Papineau):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development. During the Oka crisis in 1990, the regional director at the time signed a letter committing the government to acquiring the properties located in the Jardins d'Oka and south of Highway 344. Mr. Speaker, I hope the minister realizes my constituents are upset because they have yet to receive a formal proposal for dealing with the serious psychological and financial problems they experienced as a result of the invasion of their property and land by masked warriors.

Could the minister confirm he is about to submit proposals to these owners and to the municipality of the village of Oka? And when will he do so?

December 5, 1991

Mrs. Lise Bourgault (Argenteuil-Papineau):

Mr. Speaker, my question is directed to the Solicitor General. Recent events and today's reports in the media have proved beyond a doubt that the Canadian Security Information Service was right to fear the increasing influence of the Warriors, who don't want the RCMP or the QPP around so they can go about their illegal business and smuggle goods without further ado.

Could the minister confirm that he had a meeting last Sunday with his provincial counterpart, Mr. Ryan, and could he tell the House what they intend to do about the current explosive situation in this region?

Mrs. Lise Bourgault (Argenteuil -Papineau):

Mr. Speaker, the minister is reading an answer written in advance. The reality is quite different. It is not what the minister would have me believe.

My supplementary question is as follows. The minister knows perfectly well that the situation in the Mohawk communities is untenable and that the RCMP, with the help of the Quebec Police Force, must implement a system to act now so that these troublemakers are arrested as soon as possible.

November 25, 1991

Mrs. Lise Bourgault (Argenteuil-Papineau):

Mr. Speaker, my question is for the Solicitor General of Canada.

On the weekend, two RCMP officers were attacked by Mohawks connected to the Kahnawake Warriors and today, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service tells us that this Warrior society has contacts with extremists and is extending its influence in Quebec and Ontario. The minister also knows that these Warriors are involved in conspiracies, crimes and smuggling of all kinds that afflict and discredit the Mohawk people in Canada.

Can the minister tell us what he intends to do now with the help of his provincial counterparts to rid society of these bandits and to restore Canadians' security and the integrity of our justice system?

November 25, 1991

Mrs. Lise Bourgault (Argenteuil-Papineau):

Mr. Speaker, since the Oka crisis in the summer of 1990, we

have found out a great deal. It seems that the real reason behind the raising of the barricades in Oka and at the Mercier Bridge was to allow the Warrior Society to take control. There is evidence to prove that, Mr. Speaker, because since those events, Quebec Provincial Police has been unable to proceed with arrests of Mohawks guilty of criminal offences-more than 400 warrants have been issued by the courts-because they are protected by the bands.

The RCMP tells us that cigarette smuggling operations by the Mohawks are costing the government more than $350 million in taxes and that members of the RCMP were attacked by Mohawks on the weekend just because they were doing their job.

We are told that Hydro-Quebec for instance, cannot cut off power to the Mohawks as it does in the case of white people who don't pay their hydro bills, because of fear of attacks and retaliation. Today we are told by the Canadian Security Intelligence Service that the Mohawk Warrior Society maintains contacts with extremist groups and is extending its influence in Quebec and Ontario.

It is time governments tooks a firm line and cleaned up these autocratic Mohawk societies. We cannot have a double standard in this country. The security and integrity of our justice system must prevail.
