Ottawa wrong to delay Indian rights – The Gazette

Ottawa wrong to delay Indian rights
Decision giving Indian bands grace period to comply with rights law is justice denied

JOSEPH QUESNEL, Freelance

When the government introduced the Canadian Human Rights Act in 1977, it was acknowledged to be a glaring omission to exclude First Nations people (as defined in the Indian Act) from the Act’s protection. Section 67 was a scandalous clause that denied aboriginal Canadians access to rights other Canadians take for granted.

July 10, 2008

Newmarket, Ont. — Your article Honouring Our Aboriginal Sons And Daughters (July 1) laments that little has been written about Canada’s aboriginal heroes, including our most decorated aboriginal soldier, Francis Pegahmagabow, who won the Military Medal and two bars in the First World War. In fact, there is a wealth of material in print and on the Web, although much of it is misinformation.

I have always known Canada to be an impressive country, but a few weeks ago I elevated my impression of the Canadian people and government to the nationhood equivalent of a real class act. This was sparked by the bold and courageous gesture the Canadian government officially made by issuing a formal, public apology to the tens of thousands of indigenous people, and their families, who as children had been forcibly taken from their families and sent to boarding schools.

Taking a respectful view of contempt – Globe and Mail

Taking a respectful view of contempt

July 9, 2008

Ontario’s highest court has reduced to nothing the 60-day contempt sentences imposed on Queen’s University professor Robert Lovelace and six other native protesters in Eastern Ontario, and cut their substantial fines nearly to nothing. Although the decision comes too late in some ways – Mr. Lovelace had already served 14 weeks, and the others 10 weeks – it points to a humane and sensible approach in difficult circumstances. The rule of law is not merely a hammer to be wielded by the courts in an automatic or reflexive way.
