Federation Of Saskatchewan Indian Nations Calls Harper Gov'ts Education Spending Claims 'Fairy Tales'

"Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada Minister John Duncan is using 'Pinocchio accounting' in his latest pronouncements on First Nations education funding, says the Federation of Saskatchewan Indian Nations (FSIN).

“The government’s numbers are, in fact, fairy tales,” said FSIN Vice-Chief Simon Bird. Bird invited Duncan to come to Saskatchewan and point to a single reserve school which receives more funds than the provincial system. Duncan recently held a news conference to say reserve schools actually receive more funding per student than those in the provincial system.

Duncan’s claim is in direct contrast to a host of organizations and officials, including a parliamentary committee, the auditor-general, the parliamentary budget office, the Saskatchewan government, various education commissions and others."
