The Canadian government is increasingly worried that the growing clout of aboriginal peoples’ rights could obstruct its aggressive resource development plans, documents reveal.

Since 2008, the Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs has run a risk management program to evaluate and respond to “significant risks” to its agenda, including assertions of treaty rights, the rising expectations of aboriginal peoples, and new legal precedents at odds with the government’s policies.....

Specific Claims Research Associations Call for Immediate Restoration of Funding

February 26, 2014

Last week, Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC) notified Claims Research Associations and First Nations across Canada that funding for specific claims research and development will be drastically cut beginning April 1, 2014.

The Research Directors of these associations are directly responsible for advancing hundreds of specific claims across Canada for hundreds of First Nations. We call on you to immediately restore funding for this critical work.

Specific claims deal with Canada’s failure to fulfill historical lawful obligations to honour its treaty promises to First Nations and to protect reserve lands and assets from illegal alienation and mismanagement. The Government of Canada acknowledged its widespread failure to meet these obligations when it established policies and processes to address and resolve specific claims. The most recent of these, The Specific Claims Action Plan: Justice at Last, was announced by your Government in 2007.

Your commitment to the just resolution of specific claims as stated in Justice at Last necessarily includes a duty to fund research since First Nations are required under the specific claims policy to provide detailed, accurate historical research and legal opinions for claims to be considered by Canada. This duty is clearly articulated in Justice at Last which includes as one of its four pillars “dedicated funding for claims settlements [which] will underscore Canada's commitment to honour its outstanding debts to First Nations.” The process for claims settlement includes research. Access to the Specific Claims Tribunal, the legislated independent body authorized to make final and binding decisions on specific claims, is limited to those First Nations whose claims submissions meet an imposed “Minimum Standard”. Providing secure, sufficient research funding is essential to obtain true justice and resolution of these grievances.

Justice will not be achieved if the latest funding cuts to research are implemented. The funding cuts mean First Nations will not be able to develop new claims, nor finalize and submit claims for which significant amounts of work have already been completed. None of these claims will have access to justice promised by the creation of the Specific Claims Tribunal.

In recent media reports AANDC officials have attempted to characterize specific claims as winding down, citing large numbers of claims settled through negotiations and suggesting that few new claims are entering the “system”. These statements are misleading. After your Justice at Last announcement, AANDC processed a large backlog of specific claims that had previously languished at the Department of Justice for years. Of these, only 14% have been settled; 86% of specific claims have been either rejected outright or had their files closed after Canada made untenable and explicitly non-negotiable offers that most First Nations could not accept.

The reality is that large numbers of new claims are currently being researched. Claims research associations across Canada report hundreds of claims yet to be filed. Many of these new claims arise directly from AADNC’s “partial acceptance” policy: First Nations are now being forced to split allegations into small, discreet issues, each of which must be submitted as a separate claim as Canada now demands a release on all rejected portions of longer, more complex claims. These partial stories are not the ones First Nations want to tell, nor are they the stories that need to be told to achieve resolution. They are isolated actions without proper context that do not allow for fair negotiations or meaningful resolution.

To hint at the potential impacts of this situation, one research association reports that it has had to split four of its claims into 22 new claims to avoid signing releases on any of its issues. To predict an exponential rise in the numbers of new claims may be an understatement.

The First Nations are becoming increasingly alarmed at what they see as the undermining of the substantive goals of Justice At Last, most significantly the fair and just resolution of specific claims. This is evidenced by your government’s unwillingness to fairly negotiate many claims, issuing misleading reports about the success of Justice at Last and now administering deep cuts to research funding.

The resolution of all specific claims is a priority for First Nations, not only those claims that AANDC determines as priorities. Unresolved specific claims, grounded as they are in the Crown’s historical wrongdoings, represent actual and substantial hardship to First Nations and devastating economic losses to communities.

The resolution of all specific claims is vital for all Canadians since unresolved claims are a fundamental barrier to investment by industry.

The honour of the Crown and the goal of Crown-First Nation reconciliation in this country must take precedence over bureaucratic goals. This work must be properly funded and denial of funding is tantamount to denial of access to justice for First Nations.

We urgently call on you to restore research funding so that all specific claims may achieve the long awaited justice they deserve.

Loretta Saunders, the Inuk university student writing her thesis on missing and murdered aboriginal women, was killed on the same day native women delivered a petition to Parliament, signed by more than 23,000 Canadians, demanding a national inquiry into the issue.

That connection haunts Cheryl Maloney, a native leader in Nova Scotia – and it has also compelled her to act.

Ms. Maloney, the president of the Nova Scotia Native Women’s Association, is organizing a vigil on Parliament Hill at noon on March 5 to honour Ms. Saunders and other missing and murdered indigenous women. Delilah Saunders-Terriak, Ms. Saunders’s younger sister, has also called out for vigils to be organized across the country this month – and is receiving offers of help.

Ms. Maloney has no clue as to how many people will show up, or how the vigil on Parliament Hill will be structured. She simply believes “something big has to be done.”....

Members of the Mohawk community of Tyendinaga are making good on their promise to launch a series of blockades unless the Harper government called a national inquiry, into murdered and missing Aboriginal women, by the end of February.

According to APTN News, the group has set up shop at "Shannonville Road just south of Hwy. 401...20 minutes east of Belleville, Ont. and close to Mohawk territory."

The Council of Canadians supports the call for a national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women.

Last year, the Globe and Mail reported, “The Native Women’s Association of Canada has documented nearly 600 disappearances and deaths of aboriginal women and girls in Canada, with about 40 per cent of those cases occurring after 2000, and roughly half of the suspected murders still unsolved.” The newspaper has also noted, “There are reports that at least 800 native women have been murdered or gone missing since 1990. Since September, there have been eight aboriginal women who have been killed…”

The Harper government has refused to hold a national inquiry on this situation, and frustration over this is growing.....

Little Pine First Nation refuses funding cut


By Jason Warick, The StarPhoenix March 2, 2014

SASKATOON — A Saskatchewan First Nation has refused to sign its annual funding agreement with the federal government, citing drastic cuts to a local job training program and other needs.

What will happen next for the Little Pine First Nation is unclear. As with provincial governments, First Nations’ annual contribution agreements with the federal government fund education, health care, road maintenance, social housing and most other budget items.....

APTN National News
The B.C. government is proposing a new missing persons act which they say stems from recommendations from the missing women’s inquiry report.

The act would make accessing information on a missing person a lot easier for investigations.

However it also raises lots of questions about privacy laws.

APTN’s Tina House has this story.

Ontario Helping Young People Prepare for Independence


February 27, 2014 10:45 a.m.

Ministry of Children and Youth Services

Ontario is helping young people leaving the care of Children's Aid Societies find the right supports and services by creating 50 Youth-in-Transition worker positions across the province.

The Youth-in-Transition workers will help young people ages 16 to 24 by:

Securing local affordable housing.
Finding education and employment resources to help cover the cost of postsecondary education and training, or to find a job.
Identifying skills training, such as financial literacy courses and meal planning.
Accessing health and mental health services like being connected with a family doctor and counselling.
Locating legal services, including advice for youth in the justice system.

The province is also investing in a new Aftercare Benefits Initiative. Starting this summer, eligible young people ages 21 to 24, who were previously in the care of a Children's Aid Society, can access:...

Rick Mercer says Canadians can be forgiven for thinking they are in some kind of parallel universe.

After all, the CBC comedian believes Prime Minister Stephen Harper picked the worst possible person to reform our election laws.

"I guarantee you, you get any member of the Conservative caucus alone in a room and you ask them who is the last man on Earth who should be put in charge of reforming democracy and they will tell you Pierre Poilievre," Mercer said in a scathing rant Tuesday.

Mercer took direct aim at the controversial Fair Elections Act, which critics argue will actually make it harder for certain Canadians to vote....

The First Nations Control of First Nations Education Act, announced Feb. 7, has not received a better reception than its predecessor, the First Nations Education Act, proposed last October.

Even before Prime Minister Stephen Harper unveiled the new proposal at the Kainai High School, Treaty 7 grand chief and chief of the Kainai First Nation Charles Weaselhead was distancing himself from the announcement.

“We agreed to host this national announcement, but in no way endorse the proposed legislation in its present form,” said Weaselhead in a communique to Kainai members.

Then less than two weeks later, the Assembly of the First Nations of Quebec and Labrador submitted a request for a judicial review before the federal court challenging the consultation process leading to the First Nations Control of First Nations Education Act.
AFNQL says the Assembly of First Nations, which had come to an agreement to work with the feds on the Act, cannot sign agreements on behalf of the Quebec and Labrador First Nations. AFNQL leadership say they were not privy to discussions between AFN and the federal government.....

St’at’imc Chiefs: eco-systems suffer “death by a thousand cuts”


February 12, 2014

WENDY FRASER

The St’at’imc Chiefs Council contends that the discovery of dried salmon eggs at the site of the District of Lillooet’s water intake project “speaks volumes” about the federal and provincial governments’ priorities on environmental issues.

“This kind of complacency is absolutely contemptuous in this day and age,” said St’at’imc Chiefs Council Chair Garry John. “When salmon and their habitat have been so significantly impacted, every square inch of habitat that remains is vital to helping the stocks rebuild.”

The photo of the salmon eggs was taken by Sekw’el’was Chief Michelle Edwards on the morning of Jan. 21. “The photo was taken on the shoreline just in front of the intake area that has already been excavated,” Chief Edwards told the News. “DFO (Department of Fisheries and Oceans) was with me and were taking photos as well.”....

Mohawks begin direct action to force missing, murdered inquiry

Uncategorized | 03. Mar, 2014 by APTN National News | 0 Comments

APTN National News
The Mohawks of Tyendinaga have made the first move in their threat of direct action to force the prime minister to call a national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women by putting up a blockade Sunday night.
The Mohawks cut off Shannonville road just south of Hwy. 401 at about 8:30 p.m. according to Shawn Brant.
“It’s happening,” Brant texted an APTN National News reporter.
The area is about 20 minutes east of Belleville, Ont. and close to Mohawk territory.
Both CN Rail and CP Rail run close together through the area. There are paths to the 401 from there as well that Brant and the Mohawks would be familiar with.
Brant called it “good positioning.”....
