AFN National Chief outlines federal election priorities

Perry Bellegarde says First Nations people, their priorities, and their votes matter.

The National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations outlined his priorities for the 2015 federal election campaign Wednesday.

Bellegarde says he wants to mobilize aboriginal voters and says there are a number of ridings where the First Nations vote could make the difference.

Bellegarde says treaty rights, strengthening First Nations families, revitalizing indigenous languages, ending violence against women, and implementing the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission are some of the priorities the AFN wants to see.
