Opposition to the Nomination of Maurice Vellacott to the Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Northern Affairs sign now

We, the undersigned, draw the attention of the members of the Committee on Aboriginal and Northern Affairs and Prime Minster Steven Harper to the following:





THAT on Tuesday April 18th 2006, Prime Minster Steven Harper said in a news release that his choice to CHAIR the Standing Committee on Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development is Conservative MP for Saskatoon-Wanuskewin, Maurice Vellacott.





THAT the nomination of Maurice Vellacott is at best problematic given Vellacotts poor and unsympathetic relationship with the Aboriginal community.





THAT such a nomination of Maurice Vellacott would have a detrimental impact on the direction the committees function and their assessment on Aboriginal affairs, and therefore, in the development of programs and legislation.





THAT such a nomination of Maurice Vellacott would not be in the governments best interest, as it would signify a regressive step towards impbuilding well-being for Aboriginal peoples in Canada.





WE THERFORE request that Prime Minster Steven Harper reconsider his nomination and withdraw Maurice Vellacotts name to Chair the Standing Committee on Aboriginal and Northern Affairs.
