Since he was appointed to the senate I've seen a lot of dismissive criticism of Patrick Brazeau and the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples. The criticisms that I have seen fall into two categories:
1) His organization claims to represent aboriginals off-reserve but is illegitimate and unaccountable
2) He is cozy with the Conservatives
Neither of these criticisms speak to Brazeau's policy positions, so they don't strike me as being very forceful. What's wrong with the policies Brazeau advocates?
