The 2010 budget from the Canadain Federal Government of taxpayer’s money allocated to Indian and Native affairs Canada.
Financial resources 2009-10 $ 7.33 Billion, Human Resources (FTEs) 2009-10 $ 4.81 Billion
These two items are in addition to any provincial monies that have been allocated. This does not include so called “loss revenue” from income taxes or casino taxes that are not collected etc.
That is a lot of tax dollars.
Sure costs alot to be idle no more
