For those who accuse Canada of being a racist country as we approach our 154th birthday on Thursday, a racist country would not be spending $24.5 billion this year alone to improve the lives of Canada’s First Nations, Metis and Inuit people. That should be more than enough money to deliver clean water to all Indigenous reserves. More than enough to locate the body of every Indigenous child buried in every unmarked grave outside former residential school sites across Canada. It should be more than enough to meaningfully improve the lives of Canada’s Indigenous people, most of whom now live in cities. The problem isn’t a lack of money, it’s that the money isn’t getting to the people it’s supposed to help.
