A Rethink of Indigenous Funding

“One day, I was approached and asked by a fellow called Jean Allard, a prominent member of the Indigenous community.” He felt that certain treaty rights were not being respected “and he was passionate about this. He felt that there was something very wrong happening and it had never been addressed.” Wayne Helgason is a founder of the Treaty Annuity Working Group, a special committee of the Social Planning Council of Winnipeg, with Allard in 2002. The opinions expressed in this interview by Wayne are his own and independent of the opinions of others writing for the Frontier Centre for Public Policy.”
