The federal government spends almost $12-billion annually on aboriginal matters, with much of it transferred to First Nations for governance, education, infrastructure and income assistance. That figure doesnt include spending by other levels of government, but given the amount of just federal tax dollars at stake, Ottawas new legislation to require transparency and accountability on reserves makes eminent sense.
