Scope and contentThis file contains a presentation by Fred Hall that begins with findings of a 1985 Newfoundland provincial commission stating that "paternalistic policies and programs, however well-meaning and however high-spending, are clearly not working." Hall goes on to say that the federal and provincial governments must change their focus so that Aboriginal and Inuit people can provide for themselves, rather than governments providing for them. Hall is not optimistic that this Commission will be any different than the last one. A question-and-answer period with the Commissioners follows the presentation.
