Now read former Indian Affairs Minister Chuck Strahl -- a CONtempt Party member!!!! -- tell the truth here.
The federal department responsible for First Nations has known about the worsening living conditions at Attawapiskat for years, says former Indian Affairs Minister Chuck Strahl.
In an interview with CBC Radio's The House, Strahl tells host Evan Solomon the crisis at Attawapiskat "has been a slow moving train-wreck for a long time."
However, the current Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development John Duncan said this week that officials in his department were unaware of Attawapiskat's housing problems until Oct. 28, despite having visited the community several times in the past year.
But Strahl, who retired from politics earlier this year, paints a different picture.
"It was not good when I was there, and I don't think it's appreciably, or any better now. That was well known, everybody knew it was a very difficult community for a bunch of reasons."
Attawapiskat "was always a problem," said Strahl.
Well, hush my mouth. CONtrary to all appearances, CONtempt Party members can so tell the truth.
This should be the *official* portrait of the Liar-in-Chief.
