Assembly of First Nations Quebec-Labrador (AFNQL) Chief Ghislain Picard is no more at ease now that he has heard incumbent Member of the National Assembly (MNA) of Quebec Ian Lafrenière’s take on Indigenous issues.
Lafrenière, who serves as Indigenous Affairs minister in the incumbent Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) government, joined MNAs Gregory Kelley (Liberal) and Manon Massé (Québec Solidaire), along with Parti Québécois candidate Alexis Gagné-Labrun in a debate hosted by AFNQL on Sept. 20.
The Conservative Party of Québec was too late in accepting the invitation to participate in the debate and could not be accommodated, said Picard.
Each participant was given time to answer questions specific to four topics: governance and self-determination; territories, resources and economy; health and youth protection; and protection of languages and culture.
