Harper: Indian Residential Schools Apology

A good day for Canada and Harper.


Anita Neville, Liberal aboriginal affairs critic, called Poilievre’s comments “disgraceful” and “ignorant.”

“I invite him to take a tour of many of the First Nations communities in this country and see how people are living,” she told The Canadian Press.

“The irony of something like this on the day of the apology... And I fear it reflects an attitude or a view that is prevalent among many members of that caucus.”

CTV parliamentary correspondent Roger Smith said many Conservatives are also angry at Poilievre.

“Certainly the content of what he said is very debatable, his timing was not very good at all,” said Smith.
