Liberal government announcement didn’t go as planned.
During a funding announcement by the Liberal government, Ojibway Elder Garry Sault slammed the Trudeau Liberals for a lack of consultion.
According to Global News, “Ojibway elder Garry Sault from the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation began the funding announcement with a traditional land acknowledgement but then used the opportunity to take a dig at the federal Liberals over an apparent lack of consultation regarding the future home of an education and welcome centre at the Rouge National Urban Park located in Scarborough.”
Sault told reporters, “When it comes time to have the negotiations here, they should have their elders. Our people don’t even know what you’re doing here. They haven’t informed us. And that makes me angry inside of my heart.”
Sault also brought up the possibility the Liberals won’t be in office for long:
“It’s like any government going ahead and making decisions without informing their constituents. And I’m sorry to say an election is coming. You might have to deal with a whole new group of people.”
Catherine McKenna was at the announcement, but her office has not responded to media requests for comment.

Sault’s remarks once again point to the fact that the Trudeau Liberals love to talk about ‘reconciliation,’ but don’t actually care about it at all. It’s all talk, it’s all manipulation, and it’s all deception from the Trudeau government.
