Evening Brief: ‘A historic and inspiring moment for Canada’


News Media Canada brings you today’s evening recap. It’s time to level the digital playing field. Google and Facebook are using their monopoly to threaten and undermine local news. Other countries are taking action. It’s time for Canada to take on the web giants and get closer to the local news. Learn more.

Good evening to you.

Canada has its first indigenous Governor General. This morning, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that the Queen had accepted the nomination of Mary Simon, an Inuk woman who has been a lifelong advocate for indigenous peoples. She takes office as the 30th Governor General of Canada following the resignation of Julie Payette in January in a whirlwind of controversy over her conduct at Rideau Hall.

Simon is from Kuujjuaq, Nunavik in Northern Quebec and brings an extensive resume to the role, including a stint at CBC North. In addition to serving as Canadian Ambassador for Circumpolar Affairs and Canadian Ambassador to Denmark, Simon has served as president of the Arctic Children and Youth Foundation and the National Inuit Education Committee. She also served as the former chief of the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, other His work on behalf of the Inuit led to his inclusion in the Constitution in 1982..

Speaking in Inuktitut and English, she thanked Trudeau for the “historic opportunity” and said she feels “honored, humbled and ready to be Canada’s first indigenous Governor General.” Simon said he will work every day to promote healing in Canada, noting that his appointment comes at “an especially thoughtful and dynamic moment in our shared history,” after hundreds of remains of children have been found in recent weeks in old residential schools. However, he noted that it is “An important step on the long road to reconciliation.”

“I believe that we can build a hopeful future in a way that respects what happened in the past,” he said. “It means supporting people’s well-being by focusing on our youth and better educational outcomes for all of our children. It means prioritizing the protection of our natural world so that we can have a healthy climate and planet for generations to come. “

Speaking at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Trudeau said that after 154 years ago, the country today took a historic step.

“Canada is a place defined by people – by people who serve those around them, who face great challenges with hope and determination, and most of all, who never stopped working to build a brighter tomorrow. In other words, people like Mary Simon, ”Trudeau said.

“I can’t think of a better person to face the moment.”

CBC has this look on four things you should know about Simon.

In Saskatchewan, Prime Minister and Prime Minister Scott Moe are is set to sign an agreement this afternoon that will see Cowessess First Nation retake child welfare jurisdiction. Chief Cadmus Delorme says they will regain jurisdiction over the children in care for the first time since 1951. That CBC story.

Back on the Hill: A report from the federal spending watchdog confirms that the government is letting its responsibility to help pay for Canadians’ healthcare fade, says the NDP’s health critic. The Parliamentary Budget Officer annual report on fiscal sustainability, released on June 30, forecast government finances for the next 75 years and identified Canada’s aging population as a key pressure on healthcare spending.

Don Davies, a health critic for the NDP, said he was happy the report emphasized that Canada Health Transfer (CHT) payments cannot keep up with rising health care spending. “I think this is a fundamental and extremely important issue in healthcare in Canada,” he said. “This is not the first time this has been pointed out. In fact, I know that the NDP and other opposition parties, including the Bloc, have been pointing to the long-term decline in federal contributions to health care for many years. We have been warning about the significant impact this will have on the ground if left unaddressed. ”

Prior to your virtual meeting and vote for a new leader tomorrow to replace Perry Bellegarde, The Assembly of First Nations today honored children who never returned home from residential schools.. As the Canadian Press reports, statements of grief and anger over recent discoveries of unmarked graves in residential schools were mixed with ceremonial opening prayers at the general assembly. Elder Garry Sault of Credit First Nation of Mississaugas told those gathered that this is a time of reckoning for First Nations leaders. “It is in this moment that we need bosses who are strong so that we can unite with a good mind so that we can bear our pain and our pain and turn it into a cry for justice for what happened to our people, for what happened to everyone. . of those children who were buried in the ground and have yet to be discovered. Our hearts cry to them as they cry more and more. “

And now that MPs are on a break from House of Commons sessions until September, unless we go to the polls later this summer and with the possible exception of calling the Senate to review legislation to restrict the conversion therapy, it seems that the legislative work of the 43rd Parliament is done. Members of the opposition struggled to pass bills during a stalled spring, retired MPs have given farewell speeches, ruling Liberals have intensified their searches for electoral candidates, and as of Tuesday, Canada has a new governor-general to pass. his first dissolution of Parliament.

Few significant changes to Canada’s laws passed during this iteration of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government, who will likely be remembered instead for how he navigated the country through the pandemic, aided by Parliament’s unprecedented swift approval of bills. of emergency law that allowed hundreds of billions of dollars to flow to individuals and businesses to help them survive the COVID crisis. Charlie Pinkerton has that story.

You can do it. “His latest allegation comes after he missed his July 4 goal of 70 percent of American adults taking their first hit.
