A few weeks ago, Poilievre said his government would “fully fund all the inquiries” into graves at former residential school sites, shortly after speaking to a Winnipeg-based group that has come under fire for comments on residential schools and discrimination.

Poilievre spoke at a luncheon in Winnipeg for the Frontier Centre for Public Policy (FCPP), which ran radio ads in 2018 that said it was a myth that residential schools robbed Indigenous children of their childhood.
When asked about his thoughts on reconciliation in an interview with Global News, Poilievre said he would take “a different approach” to the efforts if elected, and vowed his government “would fully fund all the inquiries into human remains at the, or near the, sites of residential schools.”
It is unknown what Poilievre will be speaking about in Vancouver but this article will be updated following the speech.
