they didnt thro up a fence around those 22,000 kms of land, I been behind the unistolten blockade doing forestry research by mtn bike we asked and they let us in, there is one bridge but you could get in if you had a boat and thats how the land defender got back in, -32 that week pretty cold for a camp out
but Delgamuukw and Tsilcotin decisions say the Wetsueten do have a say in what goes on because they never gave up their lands, read the Royal proclaimation of 1763 which was designed to run Canada after the english took it from the french
But you ARE just a settler, and your nation is was trying to steal it ... again
I have read the decisions and I think that has set us up for generations of conflict. You can say I am just a settler, but that is clearly not the case. The simple fact is that Canada exists and the First Nation's only power to fight for land rights is within the Canadian court system, so theoretically the land was never surrendered, but as long as Canadian law rules it is hard to make the case that those lands are not part of Canada.
So how do you see this ending? What would be a fair conclusion to land disputes in your opinion? I feel that the best we can do is makes deals over ownership of the land, but at the end of all this, we will all be Canadians.
