In Committee from the Senate of Canada - Aboriginal Peoples - June 11, 2014


The Senators study Bill C-25, a bill concerning the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation Band Order. Testifying at the committee are Jaimie Lickers, counsel for the Mi’kmaq First Nations Assembly of Newfoundland, and Pauline Tessier and Helen Darrigan, non-status Indians who appear as individuals. The witnesses argue that the application process for individuals seeking Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation Band Indian status is unfair and inconsistent. (June 11, 2014) UPDATE: Bill C-25 received royal assent on June 19.
