Joint Statement: Idle No More, Defenders of the Land & Truth Before Reconciliation

On September 7, 2018, Defenders of the Land, the Truth Campaign, and Idle No More Networks released a statement condemning the Trudeau government’s “Federal Recognition and Implementation of the Inherent and Treaty Rights of Indigenous Peoples in Canada” legislation.

They write, “The core of the planned federal ‘legislative framework’ is to shift bands currently under the Indian Act into ‘self-government’ agreements, which the Trudeau government is falsely calling ‘self-determination.”
