This is the contract that is null & void since one of the parties to it no longer exists here.
If only that were true. First, the Constitution of 1867, then the Indian Act and then the Charter, even if we were to ignore the fact that Canada is a Commonwealth Nation and not a republic. Canada has always, for some strange reason, acknowledged the duty to Crown treaties.
Comparing the hiring practices of a unionized shop to the issue of native claims is not quite right.
Hiring practices was hardly the gist of my comment.
That's why so many qualified white folk work in the band offices instead of all those untrained indians.
Band Offices? If you're referring to FN governmental facilities, well duh. If you're talking about Native business, I know many non Native people hired to work in Native owned businesses.
Actually the overwhelming majority of Canadians have been duped into believing they don't have the right by those that want to retain power over us.
So you keep saying. I await your presence on the evening news.
