Aboriginals doing better
Yesterday, Statistics Canada issued some data on aboriginals living in metropolitcan areas.And, guess what? They are doing much better than they were 2 decades ago.
In addition, employment rates in these urban centres for Aboriginal adults aged 25 to 44 who had completed their university degrees were on par with their non-Aboriginal counterparts in 2001. The only exceptions were those in Regina and Saskatoon.
In addition, more aboriginal youth are attending school, employment rates are up, and there is a decline in dependence on transfer payments.
This is all good news. This underlines the importance of assimilation. Living off the reservation obviously helps aboriginals assimilate....and that brings a better life.
Now, I don't want to force aborginals off reservations....but, I do want to bring more free enterprise and freedom (like private home ownership) to the reservation.
