North Spirit Lake – CBC Radio

North Spirit Lake

Monday, Jul. 14, 2008 | 01:10 AM AT

While the Truth and Reconciliation Commission does its work, many native communities are still struggling with a litany of economic and social problems. Those problems are on full display in North Spirit Lake, a tiny, remote First Nations community in Northern Ontario. Unemployment there is rampant. So is drug use. Nearly half the community’s children go hungry on a regular basis. And the community hasn’t had reliable police service for five years.

Seven First Nations leaders were sent to jail this spring for protesting mining activity on their ancestral lands. In May, the court of appeal set them free. This morning, the appeal court judges released their reasons for that decision.

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.
