CANADA’S aboriginal young people are calling for a universal vote in national elections of First Nations leaders, legal safeguards against exploitation of aboriginal cultures, a national First Nations History Month in Canada and treaty-protection guarantees in North America-Mexico trade agreements.
Those were just some of the recommendations that aboriginal youth from across Canada called for in Winnipeg at the end of a three-day conference Thursday.
