June 11 was a historic day in Canada. To describe the scene of hundreds of aboriginal Canadians gathered on the lawns of Parliament Hill, to describe the faces fixated on the giant television screens outside of the House of Commons, to describe the standing ovation as aboriginal leaders walked into the Commons is to describe the transformation and adaptation of democracy.

Better late than never – Globe and Mail

Better late than never

Adam Radwanski, today at 12:49 PM EDT

This should be bigger news than it is.

First the Tories made the Canadian Human Rights Act applicable on reserves; now they’re going to keep closer tabs on how federal funds are spent by native leaders, and apparently allow band members to have their councils audited when they suspect them of fraud or mismanagement. If only it follows up by standardizing reserves’ election processes, the current government will achieve most of what the previous one backed away from when it abandoned the First Nations Governance Act.
