Treaty Talks Critique

The Fraser Institute says native treaty talks in B.C. have now cost more than a billion dollars over 15 years. It adds they’ve produced only 8 treaties in various stages of completion in that time.

A new institute report concludes the treaty process is deeply flawed and pits Canadians against Canadians. The right-wing think tank also says governments are endorsing positions which discriminate against non-aboriginals, giving First Nations preferential tax treatment.

Study author Mark Milke says aboriginal governments should be given the same taxing powers as other municipalities. He also argues treaties should settle all issues and governments need be more open about their negotiating positions.
