Chefs denounce Legault & rsquo; attitude

MISE & Agrave ; DAY

Heads of indigenous communities denounce the expeditious attitude of François Legault at the Great Economic Circle of Indigenous Peoples and Quebec on Friday.

“& nbsp; I am extremely disappointed & nbsp ; “, Affirms Réal McKenzie, Chief of the Innu community of Matimekush-Lac John.

” & nbsp; It is either a profound lack of respect or a total lack of vision in relation to a reality that should be obvious to the government of Quebec & nbsp; “, adds Ghislain Picard, Chief of the Assembly of First Nations of Quebec and Labrador.

Premier François Legault delivered a speech on Friday to around thirty minutes in front of the Great Circle. However, he did not meet the leaders individually on the sidelines of the event.

“& nbsp; We have a prime minister who comes to seize this opportunity to present himself in an electoral context”, specifies M . & nbsp; Picard.

“& nbsp; We are going to be accused of bad faith in the process. We always inherit the burden of proof & nbsp; “, he laments, during a press conference, accompanied by leaders of several communities.

Economic announcements

The Great Economic Circle of Indigenous Peoples and Quebec, which was held Friday and Thursday in Montreal, brings together mainly Indigenous and non-Indigenous elected officials as well as business people to discuss economic recovery and the contribution of the First Nations to the Quebec economy.

A school for Native leaders, carried out in partnership with HEC Montréal, was announced at the Grand Cercle. During his visit, François Legault provided funding of $ 10 million over five years for the initiative.
