When I took on the task of writing an update on the Algonquin land claim, I was unaware of the controversy I’d find. Unifying steps toward a “modern-day treaty” agreement? Think again. The agreed upon fact is that Ottawa and much of Eastern Ontario sits on unceded Algonquin land. For 20 years, Algonquin representatives have …
