Like a building code, each article of the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples comes from a time when a right was violated.
That’s why the leadership of the CRC in Canada affirmed the U.N. Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples in 2016 with these words: “We honour the Declaration’s expression of Indigenous perspectives on justice and right relations that have, too often, been missing and ignored in the shaping of our collective lives.”
And that’s why, as momentum gathers to reconcile Canadian law to Indigenous rights as outlined in the U.N. Declaration, we’re adding our voices in support of Bill C-262. This bill would bring Canadian law more in line with Indigenous rights. (Read the full bill.)
Will you add your own voice to the momentum and urge the Senate to pass Bill C-262?
