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

Métis celebrate historic Supreme Court land ruling - Politics - CBC News | Adams Current Event Page | 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.
Adam Kuharski's insight:

In my opinion Canada's metis people should be celebrating that they have finally been heard. The only problem is that how much of this subject will stay unachieved. For example when will these people get their land? And when they do get their land where will this land be? Will it be forcing urban home owners away from their home? There are just so many things that have not been answered and who knows when they will be.

Adam Kuharski's curator insight, March 12, 2013 8:12 PM

I dont understand why it took 130 years to finally resolve a problem like this. It makes me wonder what other things do the supreme court not find high priority. There is no way it took them 130 years to come to a conclusion on whether or not the government viloated its fiduciary duty to the metis community in the late 1800's. In my opinion they did not care until they got enough push to finally come to a result.
