Saganash tables private members' bill on UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People
On January 28th, 2013 New Democrat M-P Romeo Saganash tabled a private members' bill that would make all Canadian laws consistent with the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People. Canada was one of the last countries to sign the UN declaration. It includes the right to maintain a distinct culture, to equality, to lands and resources and for treaties to be respected. Roderick Rabbitskin spoke with the NDP's deputy critic for Aboriginal Affairs, Romeo Saganash.
