Single representative needed
Re: Indigenous Affairs split augurs well for progress (Sept. 110
Perhaps now our Indigenous people can hope for some real progress in bringing them closer to equal treatment under human rights, the Constitution and the law.
My observation from the media in our area, close to Six Nations, is that if other Canadian Indigenous groups face the challenges we do in Brant/Brantford they also need radical changes in the representation of the their leadership. Unless they can select a single negotiating representative, only frustration is going to occur.
Having worked both sides of the table in union/management negotiations in the past, I know that, without that critical change, any attempt to reach agreements is impossible.
If Indigenous people can’t decide what they want, forget trying to solve the differences. It is a waste of everybody’s time and effort. George Hatton Paris
