Promised Indigenous rights recognition legislation won’t be in place before next election
CBC News November 14, 2018
One of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's key promises on Indigenous rights — delivered on Valentine's Day — won't come to pass before the next federal election, CBC News has learned.
The Liberal government won't be tabling legislation to create its promised Federal Recognition and Implementation of Indigenous Rights Framework this fall as previously planned.
Ottawa was aiming to table the proposed legislation before Christmas in hopes of hitting its last window of opportunity to get it through the parliamentary process by late spring, ahead of next fall's federal election, but it has yet to develop a draft for the framework.
