Why won’t Ottawa honour its First Nations treaties? – nationalpost.com

Why won’t Ottawa honour its First Nations treaties?

Posted: March 23, 2009,

Canada’s relationship with modern aboriginal treaty organizations is currently in crisis, and the Crown’s ongoing failure to implement the promises of modern treaties is largely to blame. In 2003, in an attempt to address the crisis, aboriginal peoples from across Canada formed a coalition to press Canada to adopt a policy for implementing modern treaties. After much work and many failed attempts to engage government in a collaborative process, the Land Claims Agreements Coalition completed a Model Canadian Treaty Implementation Policy, which it released on March 3, 2009.
