IN THE NEWS: CBC - Citizenship study guide remains outdated in its ‘simplistic’ account of Indigenous history, critics say

NDP immigration critic Jenny Kwan says the time it took for the bill to pass is an example of how slowly the Trudeau government is moving when it comes to reconciliation.
"It is slow as molasses and, frankly, it's inexcusable. This call to action is what is deemed to be a really low-hanging fruit," Kwan said. She also criticized the time the Trudeau government has taken to compile the new Discover Canada guide. 
"The new citizenship guidebook has been in the works for more than five years now," she said. 
She added that she has asked the office of the Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship about the timeline of an update but has yet to receive an answer.
