To be fair here Unit, the funds mentioned are not government hand out. Rather they are funds from an IBA between the Innu and what was once INCO now Vale. I think the previous audit may have been of government funds. Still plenty of room for worry though. And it is scant payment for the loss of ones land and culture, pity it was not managed fairly and for the future generations.

Guess what? It is my land too. I am a Nldr. I am sick and tired of having my tax dollars go to these people. Gimmee, Gimmee, Gimmee.....the mentality of entitlement never ceases to amaze me. Politiciams are afraid to raise questions. I wish just one of them had the guts to do so...and end this sinkhole that consumes my money and that of every other hard working person in the province.

Does this surprise anybody ??? How much longer are the govt going to give blank cheques to these native band councils to spend our money with no accountability? Seems like it never ends. It appears that the Govts haven't got the guts to take action for some unknown reason.

I am pretty sure the government does not have the right to take action. Natives are like a nation within a nation, as I understand it, probably why they are called " First Nations". Remember, it is us that are on their land selling off their resources to the planet. Should they not get something? If you replaced the words "...our money..." to "...their money..." in your rant above, you sound a bit silly. I am just glad the Government is checking up to see if the money is being distributed fairly in the native community, which it seems it isn't. Corruption everywhere.
