Taxpayers are generous to First Nations Canada’s taxpayers have been increasingly generous to Aboriginal Canadians over the decades but that reality is not often the narrative one hears from selected First Nations leaders. Instead, the oft-stated opinion is that taxpayers should ante up ever more.

For instance, former Assembly of First Nations chief Phil Fontaine once wrote that any “argument that enough money is already being spent must be regarded as thoroughly uninformed, or worse, shockingly mean-spirited.” Last year, at the Assembly of First Nations’ special chiefs meeting, out of 47 approved policy resolutions, 22 resolutions asserted inadequate funding, called for additional funding and/or called for exemptions from payments and taxes normally due. https://www.fraserinstitute.org/artic…
