UN Special Rapporteur wraps up fact-finding mission
James Anaya, the UN Special Rapporteur on the rights of Indigenous Peoples, concluded his nine-day fact-finding mission in Canada today with a press conference summarizing his findings.
Canadians on Twitter followed the press conference closely, tweeting Anaya’s statements on the state of Indigenous Peoples in Canada:
Yesterday, Industry Minister James Moore appeared on CTV’s Question Period and mentioned that tomorrow’s Throne Speech will highlight the government’s efforts to focus on “consumer-friendly measures”. Among those “consumer-friendly measures” is a proposed “pick and pay” cable system where Canadians would have a choice of which channels they want to pay for, instead of being forced to pay for bundles.
Canadians appeared to be very excited about this possibility, with a number of individuals tweeting their support for the initiative.
