Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says he is committed to building an open and positive relationship with Indigenous people as prime minister — but some First Nation leaders say he has done little as an MP to build ties with reserves in his own riding of Regina-Qu'Appelle.

The relationship between the Crown and Indigenous people is one of the key policy areas Scheer will have to navigate if he takes office, and one that the previous Liberal government spent a lot of political capital on rebuilding.

While the Conservative Party has not released its full platform yet, Scheer's public statements to date signal he'd set a tone different from the Liberals' approach.
