Scrums - December 9, 2011

Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan spoke to reporters following his announcement that the First Nation community of Attawapiskat will be receiving 15 modular homes. Deteriorating living conditions caused the northern Ontario reserve to declare a state of emergency more than a month ago. The Conservative government has not said who will pay the estimated $1.2-million cost of the homes.

NDP MP Charlie Angus, Liberal leader Bob Rae and Liberal aboriginal affairs critic Carolyn Bennett responded to questions about the emergency housing solution and the government's response to the crisis in Attawapiskat.

NDP foreign affairs critic Hélène Laverdière, Liberal leader Bob Rae and Bloc Québécois citizenship critic André Bellavance reacted to the federal government's citizenship fraud investigation. Canada is investigating more than 6.000 people for fraudulently trying to gain citizenship or permanent resident status. At least 2,100 people may have their citizenship revoked.
