Lib­er­als miss chance to right a his­tor­i­cal wrong

The Daily Courier - - LETTERS -


What pos­si­ble rea­son could the fed­eral gov­ern­ment have have for re­fus­ing to adopt Bill C-262, which calls on the gov­ern­ment to en­sure Canada’s laws com­ply with the United Na­tions Dec­la­ra­tion on the Rights of In­dige­nous Peo­ples.

This is the Lib­er­als’ one chance to suc­ceed where so many other govern­ments have failed — or sim­ply failed to act.

Here, fail­ure to act is tan­ta­mount to ac­cept­ing the sta­tus quo, where In­dige­nous peo­ples are yet again dis­re­spected and their rights abused by the very gov­ern­ment that said it would do all in its power to right this ter­ri­ble wrong.
