Liberals promise billions of dollars, and control of First Nations education


SASKATOON – Liberal leader Justin Trudeau is promising to spend $2.6 billion in core funding over the next four years on First Nations education.

According to numbers from the Assembly of First Nations, on-reserve students receive on average about $3,000 less than children in the provincial system.
