Indigenous-Settler Relations

#passbillC262 now! The Indigenous Rights Act, Bill C-262, is stuck in the Senate. It needs to get into Committee and through to 3rd reading fast, or it will die on the order paper. 262 would harmonize Canada’s laws with the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which is “the framework for reconciliation” (Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada). Most, if not all, Independent and Liberal Senators are on board, but more support is needed. Please email Opposition Whip, Senator Don Plett, and ask him to support Bill C-262 and the basic rights of Indigenous peoples—
