They said they were going to do it and they did.

This week, B.C. became the first jurisdiction in Canada to enshrine the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).

Politicians said approving the bill was important to the future of the province and all of its citizens.

  1. Is Site C dam in violation of UNDRIP today.? Ask the West Moberly and Prophet River First Nations of Treaty 8, if their rights and being violated.?
    Yes… after 15 dismissals at the Supreme Court Level …there is corruption in our BC Supreme Court system.

  2. With this becoming legislation, will the RCMP stop using violence and criminalization to delegitimize and remove traditional, non-Indian Act governance from unceded territories, to allow extractive industry access to land and water?

    Will the BC gov and BC people support the women facing the threat of daily violence at the Tiny House Warriors and the Unistoten Healing Center?

    Or will the gov use this placate Indigenous people wanting change, so they can continue to define how we Indigenous people can govern ourselves, constraining us to Chief and Council systems, on a minuscule land base?
