Indigenous Protest Leading Into Canada Day

Indigenous demonstrators have been staging a protest on Parliament Hill leading into Canada Day.

There has been a standoff with police over where a teepee would be put and tempers have flared with recriminations of white privilege.  

Trudeau says Canada has failed indigenous peoples for so long, he can understand why they're ambivalent about celebrating the 150th anniversary.

The P-M says, in the past, governments have instituted policies with the best of intentions that turned out to be disastrous for Indigenous people.
