WINNIPEG – The Manitoba government is offering more than 13,000 acres of Crown land to a northern Manitoba First Nation as compensation for an ill-advised relocation that was forced on the band more than 50 years ago — a move for which the province officially apologized Tuesday.

In 1956 the Sayisi Dene band was relocated from Duck Lake to the outskirts of Churchill. The federal government was ultimately responsible for the move but approved it partly on the advice of the Manitoba government, which mistakenly believed the band’s hunting practices were hurting the area’s caribou population.

How economic realities and demographic trends are boosting the stock of aboriginal employees in Alberta – albertaventure.com

How economic realities and demographic trends are boosting the stock of aboriginal employees in Alberta

Native Opportunity

by Max Fawcett | Illustration by Joel Kimmel

If hockey is Canada’s national pastime then looking down our collective noses at our American neighbours is a very close second. There are few things that the average Canadian enjoys more, save perhaps for a freshly baked maple dip donut or a rousing constitutional debate on senate reform, than the almost sensuous pleasure associated with the belief that our healthcare system, our comparatively generous welfare state or our sensitivity to the plight of others set us apart from Americans and their sink-or-swim morality. But for most aboriginal people in Canada the notion that they live in a kinder and gentler country is little more than delusional hypocrisy, and one that’s directly contradicted by available facts.
