A 12 year court case against the federal government will wrap up this week in Ottawa.
If there ruling is what the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples is hoping for, it could have a major impact on Metis and non-status Indians.
The organization is a plaintiff in a case that claims the federal government has the jurisdiction to deal with non-status Indians and Metis peoples.
After two months of trial and 12 years of building a case, CAP’s lawyers are making their final arguments.
The decision could affect thousands of non-status Indians and Metis across the country.
CAP lawyer Joseph Magnet spoke to APTN from Ottawa.
