Justin Trudeau is under fire, rightfully so, for comments he made to a private gathering of First Nations chiefs. In a leaked video, Trudeau is seen scolding the gathering and accusing them of mismanaging their time. 


After Trudeau dedicated only one hour to discuss issues of healthcare, clean water and various issues, First Nations chiefs were lectured for not properly managing the meeting and for inviting too many participants. This led to a former chief candidate, Russ Diabo to call Justin Trudeau arrogant, as reported by CTV News:


The man who posted a video of a meeting between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and First Nations leaders says it shows "Trudeau's arrogance and petulance towards First Nation chiefs."

Russ Diabo, a policy analyst who recently ran for national chief of the Assembly of First Nations, posted the video on YouTube but did not film it.

"I was appalled when I saw it, but not surprised," said Diabo from Innisfil, Ont., on Sunday. "It indicates to me how he treats First Nations leadership."

Trudeau met with the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations on Sept. 12 when he was in Saskatoon for the Liberal Party's annual caucus retreat.

In the video, which is about three-and-a-half minutes long, Trudeau said the plan was to meet with about eight people for an hour-long discussion. But around 30 people showed up and there wasn't enough time for everyone to speak.

Some unidentified people in the video say they drove hours to take part in the meeting but, 45 minutes in, only a handful of people had addressed the prime minister.
