As the national chief for the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples, I would like to take this opportunity to provide my opinion about the recent historic ruling issued through the Federal Court by Michael Phelan regarding the recognition that Métis and non-status Indians are Indians within the Constitution (Daniels vs. the Queen). This discussion comes at a critical time, probably more so, since the Crown has decided to appeal the decision. I will explain the reason as to why we went to court, and where we hope to see ourselves going forward.
