This week on The House, Evan Solomon delves into the crisis that's been unfolding in the northern Ontario First Nations reserve of Attawapiskat.
CBC reporter Tom Parry brings us the voices of the people who live there. Then, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, Greg Rickford, answers questions about putting Attawapiskat under third-party management. Finally, former Indian Affairs Minister Chuck Strahl and former National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations Phil Fontaine weigh in. It's a conversation you don't want to miss!
Plus, CBC's Susan Lunn reports on the prep going into the first NDP leadership debate this Sunday and the race to replace Jack Layton. And, Evan asks Colin Robertson and Gar Pardy whether the Canada.U.S. border deal is good for trade or whether it threatens your privacy? All that, Kady O'Malley and more!
