Native leaders reaffirm call on feds to drop aboriginal education legislation

HALIFAX - First Nations leaders have reaffirmed their demand that the federal government drop a controversial proposal to reform aboriginal education.

After considering various counter-proposals at their annual meeting in Halifax, the Assembly of First Nations opted to stay the course, calling for the withdrawal of Bill C-33.

The federal government has said the so-called First Nations Control of First Nations Education Act is now on hold, as is any money that would come with it.

First Nations chiefs also supported a resolution to restart talks and work together with the federal government to move aboriginal education reform forward.

The meeting also saw the assembly agree to come together in Winnipeg in December to elect a new national chief.

Former chief Shawn Atleo stepped down earlier this year amid criticism for his support of the proposed education reforms. -CP-
