"One of the laws in this country is the law that's enshrined in the Constitution
that says Aboriginal and treaty rights of the Aboriginal peoples of Canada
are recognized and affirmed. These are not empty words.
It is a part of the Constitution of this country.
It is part of the law of this country."
. . . Grand Chief Ed John

PERSPECTIVE
"Debunking the 'Race' Myth in Debating BC Treaties"
by Paul Chartrand
May 13, 2002

"Treaty negotiations and aboriginal rights
are extremely sensitive issues.
A referendum that relates to such issues is
fraught with the danger that it could act as a
lightning rod for unjustified animosity
and negativity towards aboriginal people
who are trying to resolve the issues
surrounding their status as Canadians."
BC Chamber of Commerce President John Winter

The Tragedy of the BC Treaty Referendum
"We are no longer in negotiations,
but in a situation where one party is dictating
what they want"

by Hupacasath Chief Judith Sayers
(Note this is a .pdf file)

"Ballot Burning is an Option"

"The Denigration of ?A Great National Question:?
The Campbell Referendum on
the Indian Title in British Columbia"

by Anthony J. Hall
Department of Native American Studies
University of Lethbridge

"As the provincial government goes forward
with its referendum, it is important to remember why
British Columbia chose the path of negotiation
in the first place"

Indian Affairs Minister Robert Nault

Gordon Campbell and others tried (but failed) to have the Nisga'a Treaty declared void
I find the Nisga'a Final Agreement, and the settlement legislation
passed by Parliament and the Legislative Assembly of the Province of British Columbia,
establish a treaty as contemplated by Section 35 of the Constitution Act, l982.
The legislation and the Treaty are constitutionally valid.

BC Supreme Court - July 2000
