QUEENS PARK – POLITICS – “When Premier Ford asked me to serve as the Minister of Indigenous Affairs I was eager to take on the important role of working with First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in the province of Ontario.

“I am proud of my previous work with Indigenous communities and I am proud to represent so many Indigenous people in my constituency.

“Despite the media’s spin, the Ministry of Indigenous Affairs was not folded into another Ministry and it is filled with highly capable and qualified staff who will continue to serve Indigenous communities at the highest levels.

“Indigenous people across the province will have my utmost dedication as we strive to strengthen relationships, improve quality of life and expand economic opportunity for them and their communities.”
