First Nations people need Crown approval to write up a will, form band councils and get a mortgage or financing.
Interesting move. I mean, he's right. The indian act IS a racist document and it really doesn't benefit either first nations or canadians these days. But you're talking about a pretty fundamental reworking of the relationship between first nations and the gov't - first off i'm not sure the chiefs are going to like this unless you show them how this means they get more power and money rather than less, and second off i'm not quite sure what model you'd replace it with. Not that there aren't choices, just not sure what's best.
