Survey shows little change in attitudes.

In October, the University of Saskatchewan released the results of Taking the Pulse of Saskatchewan, which contained questions that related to Aboriginal issues. While the questions were not identical to a survey conducted in 2001, there were enough similarities to draw a correlation. "It seems that when it comes to Aboriginal issues, there seems to be some sort of block that individuals just can't get past," said Jason Disano, director with Social Sciences Research Laboratories with the U of S. "I honestly don't know why ... but lack of education is part of it." The attitude of Saskatchewan residents has changed little in the past decade toward Aboriginal issues.
