The Senate committee on Aboriginal peoples got back to work this week following a long Easter break.

It’s studying what a new relationship with Indigenous peoples would like.

Joining them for the first session was a prominent historian.

  1. The federal and provincial governments have both spoken of a “nation to nation” relationship……what is there to study? Delay, delay, delay! Eventually it becomes apparent that their use of “nation to nation” are just words. Otherwise we would get on with it……recognizing indigenous authority over their traditional lands! Replacing the imposed Band Councils with Indigenous family head systems. Negotiation could so easily take place before an impartial third party. Once the self interest of Canada and the provinces were taken out of the formula, a true nation to nation relationship could begin. An impartial forum at an international level would move all of this forward in short order. Stop stalling Canada!

  2. Just what we need another study on how they can form a Relationship with us. As if the Royal commission on aboriginal people didn’t do that as well as the Truth and Reconciliation Recommendations. Why don’t they just follow their own studies and recommendations. What is everybody waiting for except an election where they can pass it on someone else.
