United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

MP Saganash pushes Liberals to support his indigenous rights bill, says no need for more consultation

‘My private member’s bill doesn’t contradict in any way what they’re trying to do,’ says the NDP MP of the government's UN declaration adoption. ‘Why consult to consult again?’

NDP MP Romeo Saganash says his private member's bill ensures the UN indigenous rights declaration is adopted legislatively, rather than just through policies and programs. The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
