‘Right-based ap­proach’ needed: Trudeau

Ottawa Sun - - NEWS - JOANNA SMITH

Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau is plan­ning to over­haul the way the fed­eral govern­ment re­lates to Indige­nous Peo­ples, propos­ing a new leg­isla­tive frame­work de­signed to pave the way to­wards stronger rights and greater con­trol over their own des­tiny.

“We need to both rec­og­nize and im­ple­ment Indige­nous rights,” Trudeau said Wed­nes­day in a speech in the House of Com­mons.

“Be­cause the truth is, un­til we get this part right, we won’t have last­ing suc­cess on the con­crete out­comes that we know mean so much to peo­ple.”
