Federal Elections: THE AFNQL WELCOMES THE ELECTION OF THREE MEMBERS OF THE FIRST NATIONS

WENDAKE, QC, May 3 /CNW Telbec/ - The May 2nd federal election could be remembered as historical in several respects. The Assembly of the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador (AFNQL) is especially pleased with the election of three members of the First Nations: Roméo Saganash (Cree Nation), and Jonathan Genest-Jourdain (Innu Nation) in Quebec, as well as Peter Penashue (Innu Nation), in Labrador.

Chief Picard hopes that the election of these three First Nation members will bring to light the interests and the stakes of Aboriginal peoples before a government, which, all too often, turns a blind eye or tries to downplay our issues.

"The AFNQL is willing to work with all those political parties which accept to support First Nations issues. I congratulate those three new members of the House of Commons and offer them my collaboration." stated AFNQL Chief Picard.
