Aboriginal Affairs confirms “new approach” for specific claims

APTN National News
Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada has released its first, initial response to reports from APTN National News about “take-it-or-leave-it” offers being prepared for all outstanding specific claims negotiations.

AANDC confirms that they are “adopt[ing] a new approach to speed up claims resolution”, but the response has done little to quell growing nationwide concern about the reported “take-it-or-leave-it” offers.

APTN National News reporter Meagan Fiddler has the latest.
