Panel Discusses Tsilhqot’in Land Title Decision

The Thompson Rivers University Lake Williams Lake Campus hosted a discussion panel to hear and discuss the history and implications of the Tsilhqot’in Land Title Decision.

Chief Roger William, says the June 26 ruling which granted 1750 square km of land to the Tsilhqot’in Nation is just one many steps of First Nations people catching up to govern their lands, titles, and rights.

William also says the ruling is a great opportunity for First Nations in reclaiming sovereignty.

Also taking part in the panel was distinguished Professor James Tully, with the University of Victoria who says we don’t know what the future will look like for treaties in BC following the Supreme Court of Canada ruling.

Tully adds that the Chilcotin people are not treaty people and are known for not particularly wanting a treaty.

The discussion panel which had an open question period concluded with William remarking that ‘only once when First Nations are caught up will Canada bloom.’
