As you may know, the House of Commons passed Bill C-262, introduced by Quebec MP Romeo Saganash, on May 30, 2018. The bill ensures that Canadian laws are consistent with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People (UNDRIP).
However, Senators from the Conservative Party are threatening to stall and filibuster, which would essentially kill the bill and everything the UNDRIP can contribute to reconciliation.
The Assembly of First Nations is calling on its allies to take urgent action.
Don’t let un-elected conservative Senators stand in the way of reconciliation!
