Canada and the Law:

In this video, Kate Kempton speaks at a community forum: Beyond Conflict and Blame.

Ms. Kempton explains the principles of law governing Canada's relationship with Indigenous Nations within Canada's borders.

She describes the treaties Canada has with Indigenous Nations as our permission ... Canada's permission ... to settle certain areas.

We cannot 'throw out the treaties' as some would suggest, because they define our country.
What we can do is renegotiate treaties, and that is all Canada can do, legally.
