Link of the day, May 7, 2018

Link of the day, May 7, 2018: An alliance of European associations that have concerned themselves with the human rights of aboriginal peoples in Canada, have published a report detailing how the Canadian government has, at least since 1998, ignored  criticisms levelled under various UN human rights conventions at the treatment of the indigenous people in Canada. These conventions require that every few years the country being examined offer a report to the subject, detailing their treatment of the affected peoples.

This is a document worth reading, because its criticisms are probably unknown to most Canadians, who traditionally, and mistakenly, think of themselves as among the world’s leaders in the field of human, social and economic rights.
