Métis celebrate historic Supreme Court land ruling - Politics - CBC News

Métis celebrate historic Supreme Court land ruling - Politics - CBC News | 12 Aboriginal studies | Scoop.it
Canada's Métis are celebrating a Supreme Court ruling that found the federal government failed to follow through on a promise it made to the Métis people over 140 years ago.
Sera-lynn Bonin's insight:

I don't agree or disagree with anything said in this article. I do find the fact that it took 140 years for the Supreme Court to get this done. The fact that the federal government failed to follow through on a promise shows how much they don't care what's going on with the Metis. I'm glad that this opens up doors to negotiate forms of compensation after being failed by the government for 140 years.

How did this happen?  Have claims like this been made against the RCMP before?
