Resolution number: 
21
November 1995
Whereas: 

Canada has a record of failure to honour United Nations human rights covenants and conventions in its treatment of the indigenous peoples of Canada by uprooting those peoples from their lands and denying them due process, even under Canadian law;

Therefore be it resolved: 

that 

  1. The CCR seek a dialogue with the appropriate representatives of the indigenous peoples of this land in order to consider collaboration with them for the purpose of ensuring that indigenous peoples and uprooted peoples both benefit fully from the United Nations human rights covenants and conventions;
  2. The Working Group on Protection invite volunteers to establish a subcommittee to pursue this resolution.
Working Group: 
Inland Protection
