Canadian First Nations Opposition to Implementation of Bill C-428 on First Nations People
The First Nations People of Canada oppose this act and it's implementation to protect the sovereignty of our culture and the few remaining Treaties with the Canadian Government.
Bill C-428 decreases the ability for First Nations communities to act independently on issues pertaining to First Nations communities and people.
This loss of independence negatively effects our culture and societies. The First Nations people of Canada wish to preserve our independence to protect our culture from further assimilation.
