Public Record - First Nations Governance (Part 4 of 7)


The Assembly of First Nations, the Indigenous Bar Association, and the Law Commission of Canada host a conference on First Nations governance and legal pluralism, Gatineau, Que., April 23, 2003.

In this session, participants speak about the difference between life on Canada’s reserves and in the rest of Canadian society, the need for greater self-reliance, and the kinds of support needed to enable Aboriginal self-regulation. Speakers include Justice Tony Mandamin (Provincial Court of Alberta), John Whyte (Law Reform Commission of Saskatchewan), and Larry Chartrand (a professor of law at the University of Ottawa). Following their presentations, the panellists respond to questions from audience members.
