Federal budget an attack on First Nations’ business: Beardy

By tbnewswatch.com
Hey Stylists…It’s time to go green! Streak of Green is looking for a full time stylist–team member–who wants to quickly grow their clientelewww.streakofgreen.com

The recently released federal budget is an attack on First Nations’ business, accuses Ontario’s Regional Chief.

The Harper Government is planning to spend more than $91 million over the next five years to help police monitor contraband tobacco trafficking activities.  The RCMP will receive new radar, sonar and ground sensor devices and long-range video cameras in high-risk areas. 

Stan Beardy, who serves as the Ontario Regional Chief, says he's concerned with police going after the First Nation's tobacco industry.

Beardy says Canada needs to focus more on the quality of life on its First Nations. 

He adds that more funding is needed for basic essentials like housing, water and other infrastructure in their communities.

Under attack?


If Canadians are breaking the law and not paying tax as they are supposed to do when purchasing tobacco the RCMP should investigate.

If First Nation reserves and businesses are selling to non First Nation non status people the RCMP should lay fines on the operators and the individual's as well.

I read this article and burst out laughing.
