The Covid-19 epidemic, and the effect of business shutdowns on the Indigenous Economy

“Band Councils can’t collect any government money unless you go into a state of emergency. That’s the unfortunate part and that’s why you’ve got provinces and municipalities all calling these. You get no funding unless you do. That’s an interesting position for our people to be in; we’re really fucked. It gets back to my original point – we shouldn’t be closing our businesses. We should be doing everything in our power to make commerce safe.”
