‘Attawapiskat syndrome’ blamed for Ontario First Nations’ mistrust of inspections: documents

At least 15 northern Ontario First Nations were suspicious that government agents would use information obtained during annual water-system inspections to force the communities under third-party management, according to internal government documents, which underscore the tense relationship between the federal government and some First Nations.

In a string of internal emails from Dec. 7, 2011, obtained by Postmedia News through access-to-information legislation, Thunder Bay-based Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development employee Art Mauro writes that two northern Ontario-area Tribal Councils — representing 15 communities in the region — are “opposed to annual inspections for their communities (because) they are suspicious as to how the inspections will be used.”

He called the fear “Attawapiskat Syndrom” (sic).
