National focus over next decade should be unity, including with indigenous peoples as co-equals
If we get the balance right, then constitutional unity in Canada could develop organically, rather than confrontationally.
'Our country’s focus over the next decade or two should be threefold. First, advance national unity politically rather than constitutionally. Second, develop and begin to implement a policy worldview that is strategic in nature. And third, drastically improve living conditions for aboriginal Canadians, with a particular focus on treaty rights,' says Zach Paikin. The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
