Federal: Enforce Transparency for First Nations

Federal

To Indigenous and Northern Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett:

People in Canada’s First Nations communities deserve transparency. The First Nations Financial Transparency Act makes sure that people in First Nations communities can see how much their leaders are getting paid as well as the basic financial information for their bands. More than 90 per cent of First Nations communities have complied with legislation.

Unfortunately, the federal government has stated it will “cease all discretionary compliance measures related to the First Nations Financial Transparency Act.”

Failing to enforce this law is wrong.

We the undersigned call on Minister Bennett to enforce the First Nations Financial Transparency Act.

 

You have the power to change who influences politics in our country: big unions, big corporations and government-funded special interest groups can be challenged by the contributions of thousands of individual taxpayers who care to make a difference.
