NFN Chief McLeod backing NDP, says Liberals broke promises

‘The relationship we’ve had with the Liberal government had kind of deteriorated over the last couple of years’

Nipissing First Nation Chief Scott McLeod.

Last election the Liberals got massive support from Canada’s native communities.

That has changed, and Nipissing First Nation Chief Scott McLeod says he’s urging his members to switch their support to the NDP locally.

“The relationship we’ve had with the Liberal government had kind of deteriorated over the last couple of years,” he told BayToday. “Essentially there were a lot of big promises but short on delivery.”

McLeod cited the recent decision of the Liberal government to appeal a Canadian Human Rights Tribunal ruling ordering Ottawa to pay billions of dollars in compensation to First Nations children and their families separated by a chronically underfunded child-welfare system.
