Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould says the Liberal government will back a bill that calls for full implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), a move that could have wide-ranging consequences in Canadian law.
Speaking in Gatineau, Que., late Monday at an event commemorating UNDRIP, the Vancouver-area minister said the Liberals are now prepared to support an NDP private member's bill that would force the government's hand to implement all provisions of the declaration something the government has been loath to do in the past.
"With the direction and leadership of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, our government will support Bill C-262. The bill acknowledges the application of the UN declaration in Canada and calls for the alignment of the laws of Canada with the UN declaration," Wilson-Raybould said. "This step alone, however, will not accomplish the full implementation of UNDRIP. A comprehensive approach, one that our government is committed to, will require other appropriate measures."
Bill C-262, sponsored by MP Romeo Saganash who was also part of an international team that helped craft the declaration would ensure all Canadian laws are consistent with UNDRIP and calls for the creation of a "national action plan" to ensure implementation across jurisdictions....
...Importantly, UNDRIP recognizes the rights of Indigenous peoples to be free from racial discrimination, the right to self-determination and autonomy with regard to their "internal and local affairs," the right to financial compensation for confiscated lands, and demands states obtain "free, prior and informed consent" before approving activity including natural resources extraction on Indigenous land.
Indigenous activists have long pointed to UNDRIP as a means to oppose pipeline development that would run through traditional territory.

Having Just not Ready Justin Trudeau run Canada is akin to having Obama, Carter, Castro and Hitler running your country in the form of unapologetic and narcissistic Socialist.

What happens when the Indigenous People demand that the Canadian government quit importing Muslim immigrants that want to impose Shariah Law in Canada. What group has the loudest voice, the Indigenous People or the Canadian Socialists.
What one Prime Minister can sign another Prime Minister can shred ,well if there is another Prime Minister when Canada is under UN control
