Should the Harper Government Abandon the Aboriginals?

After more than 20 years of intensive negotiations, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is ready for adption by the UN General Assembly. The Declaration is urgently needed to promote and protect the human rights of some of the most frequently victimized peoples in the world.

       Canada played a key role in the development of the Declaration.  Yet when it came before the UN Human Rights Council this summer, Canada (along with Russia) were the only two countries to vote against it.  This is a shocking about face by the Harper government.  Of course the U.S. which is not on the Council is also opposed to it.  Is this another instance of Harper getting into bed with Bush?  Whatever, it is important that we let Harper know we want this retrograde policy to be changed.  Write a note to Harper at the House of Commons, Parliament Buildings, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada K1A O
