Here is an article illustrating what a hopeless mess Liberals have made of the Native Affairs Ministry. With some comments of my own in brackets):
 
Saskatchewan First Nation wins $4.5-million from federal government
   
"Mr. Cameron said he hopes an improved relationship between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and indigenous peoples means the government will settle similar cases at a faster rate.

"Let's not waste thousands and thousands of dollars on legal fees. The decision has been made. Precedent has been set. Therefore compensate these bands a lot sooner than how long it took Beardy's and Okemasis to get a decision," he said."

(OH my, natives are not blind. They have recognized that Liberals are frantic to buy votes and are cashing in on every issue that Liberals perceive as a weakness or embarrassment. The truth is that Liberals would do better if they encourage natives to look to the future rather than dwell in the past!)

here, let the waldo correct your obvious confusion. That decision award was made by the Specific Claims Tribunal that Harper Conservatives established in 2008... the tribunal is, "an independent adjudicative body comprised of up to 6 full time Federal judges appointed from Provincial Superior Courts across the country."
