Scheer booed by First Nations chiefs for not saying how he differs from Harper - 2018-12-06
Hundreds of First Nations chiefs booed Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer on Thursday when the opposition leader told them they will have to wait until his platform is released to see how he differs from former prime minister Stephen Harper.
The Assembly of First Nations chiefs were meeting in a downtown Ottawa hotel. During a question-and-answer session with the opposition leader, chiefs asked Scheer how he's different from Harper, with one asking him to name one policy stance he holds that's different from Harper's and another asking how he plans to rebuild trust with First Nations people that "Harper lost."
Chief Elaine Johnston of Serpent River First Nation in northern Ontario told Scheer that First Nations people have not had positive relationships with Conservative governments, including the new one in Ontario.
