Canadian Minister intrigued by Māori Economic development

Kei te hāngai te titiro a te Pirimia o Kānata, a Justin Trudeau ki te iwi Māori, ki te kimi huarahi hei awhi i a ia ki te whakapai ake i ngā mahi whakawhanaungatanga ā-iwi i tōna whenua. Ko tana Minita Take Iwi Taketake, ko David Zimmer kei konei ki te kite i te take e whakarangatirahia ana a Aotearoa i te ao, hei amorangi mō ngā mahi whakawhanaunga ki te iwi Māori.

E tutaki ana te Minita Taketake o Kanata i Te Whanau o Waipareira, me te manako ia ka whai kitenga hou hei whakapiki i nga take-a-iwi o Kanata.

“I'm here with the delegation from Ontario, to learn and get an understanding and a sense of the challenges the Maori nation faces and it's interaction with its federal Government.”

Hei tā te hemana o Te Whanau o Waipareira Trust a Raymond Hall, “So it's all about us delivering a message on our social services and how those social services may be helpful to other indigenous people around the globe.”

Kua hui kē a Zimmer rātou ko ngā āpiha nei o Kanata me te Minita Whanaketanga Māori rātou ko Te Tari Whakataunga Tiriti hoki, ki te kite ake kei hea kē a Ngai Māori i roto i ngā āhuatanga whakahaere kaupapa kawanatanga.

Hei tā Zimmer, he mea miharo te kite i ngā mahi whanaketanga ohanga a te Māori i Tamaki Makaurau, “That the Maori's are large owners of commercial properties here in Auckland in the CBD. That's just one examples that is just one example of what I hope to take back and share with the aboriginal community of Ontario in Canada,” hei tā Zimmer.

Ko tā te Kāwanatanga hou o Kanata, ka whakahou ratou i te taura here me nga iwi taketake o reira, te iwi 'First Nations'.

“In Canada a recognition that has come down from the Prime Minister and is filtering in to the population at large. That in Canada we are all Treaty peoples. If we are all Treaty peoples the question rises, how do we interperate those Treaties,” hei tā Zimmer.

Ka rere atu te Minita Taketake o Kanata, me tana tira haere nei ki Toronto, Kanata apopo.
