YELLOWKNIFE-The legislative assembly of the Northwest Territories has reconvened for a dog-fight of a session and the devolution deal signed between Ottawa and the territorial government is sure to be front and centre.
The majority of Aboriginal groups in the territory have yet to sign on to the deal and Premier Floyd Roland is taking hits from both Aboriginal leaders and regular MLAs.
Roland is being accused of failing to consult enough with First Nations before entering into the agreement.
The premier insists that the agreement will have no impact on current land claim negotiations and self government agreements.
Only two of seven First Nations asked to sign the agreement are on board and now it falls on the premier and his cabinet to find a way to bring everyone else to the table.
