  1. CDN gov free yourselves from the theft and destruction of these people by recognizing their input in this country without lies an denials. Time doesn’t negate thievery by you,As long as the grass grows,the rivers flow,as the sun shines,your words,honour them NOW!

    1. The Indigenous Peoples of Canada took part fully in the 30-year UN Indigenous Working Group’s documentation and published United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) which was unanimously voted at the 2007 UN General Assembly. It was not until 2010 Prime Minister Harper, along with the U.S.A., Australia and New Zealand decided to vote on the UNDRIP with conditions.

      Prime Minister Justin Trudeau should take the lead and start to replace the Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada federal Indian Act Policy which is an antiquated and static government bureaucracy that contradicts Indigenous rights to self-determination in Canada. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s 2015 Report and 94 Calls to Action needs to make changes in the Canadian government relationship and Indigenous Peoples by changing the status quo on the bureaucratic civil servants of both new departments, Indigenous Relationships, and Indigenous Services.
