Is it time to abolish the Indian Act?

Abel Bosum, Grand Chief of the Grand Council of the Crees, and former Prime Minister Paul Martin gave a public talk today at McGill where they discussed Indigenous leadership, governance, and development. McGill Newsroom sat down with them before the conference to discuss the challenges facing First Nations across Canada and the lessons the Cree can offer to other First Nations. Abolishing the Indian Act will go a long way toward providing the means for Indigenous self-governance from coast to coast.
