Where was the money spent?

It’s folly for Canadian taxpayers, a.k.a. Ottawa, to throw billions of dollars at Canada’s aboriginal communities in distress as long as such communities’ have chiefs like the Attawapiskat Nation’s Theresa Spence and council members who conspicuously refuse to allow Ottawa to know where all the monies are being spent.

Such stubbornness, political or legal, on the part of aboriginal leaders does little more than raise Canadians’ suspicions of possible nepotism occurring – if not outright corruption – all the while the vast-majority of low-income community members have no way to be sure that they’re being treated fairly fiscally by their chief and councillors.
