Guest: Chief Isadore Day.

The Chiefs of Ontario represents 133 First Nations communities in the province, and in this upcoming election, we wanted to get a better understanding of what issues they want to see made front-and-centre. Chief Isadore Day is Regional Chief of Ontario, and he gives us his view on relations between the province's First Nations communities and the Ontario government, what he thinks of the recent Liberal budget, and what he hopes the party leaders commit to for First Nations.
