“More than 93% of First Nations have complied, they’ve published their salaries and expenses for leadership and they’ve provided basic financial documents, now those documents show a lot of different things, some Chiefs made more than the Prime Minister but some were also volunteering, they weren’t taking any pay at all but either way that transparency needs to be there, people on First Nations need to know about it” says MacKay.
