Canada’s Indigenous voices
Today on Context hearing Canada’s First Nation Voices.
A complicated dispute has re-surfaced between Canada’s First Nation and Canadian commercial fisherman. It comes down to a peace treaty signed by the crown in the 1760’s. When the supreme court ruled that Indigenous communities have the right to fish for a moderate livelihood.
On the program- former New Brunswick politician Susan Levi-Peters, along with the president of the Maritime Fishermen’s Union, Lex Brukovskiy present their concerns. Professor Karen Lawford joins us to speak about the most vulnerable of the Indigenous population- women and girls. On THE CUE, Kollie Wood and Chris McKee discuss what the road to reconciliation looks like.
