Good Morning Sheena,
Thank you for writing. Premier Wall has asked me to monitor his email and I
will forward your letter to his attention.
Constituency Assistant to the
Hon. Brad Wall
MLA, Swift Current
Premier of Saskatchewan
Thank you for taking the time to write me with your concerns regarding Bill C-45, the Budget Implementation Act. I share your concern over the provisions included in Bill C-45.
My New Democrat colleagues and I have been vocal in our opposition to Bill C-45 since it was first introduced. Both in the House of Commons and at committee, we have used all of the options available to us under parliamentary procedure to oppose this bill. We have strongly and consistently opposed this bill and were extremely disappointed to see it pass in the House of Commons and in the Senate.
Further, we fully understand that constitutionally required consultation is more than a means to an end. It is a demonstration of reconciliation and a continuing effort to bring together First Nations and other Canadians.
On that note, I want to share with you my recent letter to Prime Minister Harper http://www.ndp.ca/news/letter-leader-official-opposition-to-prime-minister-regarding-rights-first-nations.
Again, I appreciate hearing from you on this important matter.
All the best,
Thomas Mulcair, M.P. (Outremont)
Leader of the Official Opposition
New Democratic Party of Canada

I would like to acknowledge receipt of your e-mail addressed to the Prime Minister regarding Chief Theresa Spence of the Attawapiskat First Nation.
You may be assured that your views have been given careful consideration. As your comments will also be of interest to the Honourable John Duncan, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development, I have taken the liberty of forwarding a copy of your correspondence to him for his information.
Thank you for writing to the Prime Minister.
