Mr. Speaker, I will just make the comment that aboriginals also helped to defeat the Charlottetown accord.
We talk about the community consultation review process and the impacts of that. B.C. native women are concerned about what happened to the results of the process.
Who in this country would be satisfied with the community review process if their rights were at stake or if their land and property were at risk and a ruling was made that had no prior government oversight? What if they were at the mercy of a local band and council and did not have a higher law to set limits on government? What if there were no limits to the powers they could exercise in relationship to their property, to the place they bring up their children?
