Presented to the Standing Committee on Aboriginal Affairs, Northern Development and Natural Resources
Because of the short notice provided to the First Nations Summit and the very limited amount of time available to make the presentation, this memorandum has been prepared as speaking notes rather than as a detailed legal analysis.
The memorandum has been divided into four separate parts that we believe will assist in an oral presentation. These are:
- The shortcomings in the current specific claims policy.
- How Bill C-6 proposes to address the shortcomings.
- The shortcomings in Bill C-6.
