As Dr. Carolyn Bennett pointed out, the point is to invest in K-12 and assist with education so such things do not have to occur. Additionally, it assumes that those who are First Nation and between 18 and 24 don’t know what it means to work or be trained. When I originally finished my Undergrad Degree in April of 2008, I fought hard to avoid the need of social assistance until it was financially impossible for me to ignore. I had applied to every type of job I could, from within my field of focus to MacDonalds and Tim Horton's. Unfortunately, my degree meant I was over qualified and thus could not obtain those customer service positions. I was fortunate that a week after I had apporached the Social Assistance Director in my community for support that I was offered a good job in my field. If this had happenned with this stereotypical program enacted, Id have felt ashamed, discriminated against, and treated like a lesser then the rest of the people my age who did not have to take such a lesson. This is especially true for me because I have an Honours Degree, had been working since I was 14, and had much training already. This part of the budget is an example of the massive problem that exists with the CPC and its views on Indigenous people, and especially youth. I do not need training, nor will many who this will be forced upon. What we need are proper jobs, proper economic abilities in our communities, the treaties properly respected, proper consideration about resource-sharing agreements, and a future federal Canadian government willing to work with us on a nation-to-nation level.
