First Nations Financial Transparency Act

February 8, 2020

 

One of the first changes that Trudeau implemented was the elimination of the First Nations Financial Transparency Act. 

 

I thought it was a great Act that kept not only Canadians, but First Nations people informed on what their councils were getting paid. 

 

This story reared its ugly head again in March 2018.

When I have more time I will add related articles.  If you have any links please send them to me via twitter.  @animallama
