Canada and the First Nations : cooperation or conflict?  Cover Image Book Book

Canada and the First Nations : cooperation or conflict? / Douglas L. Bland.

Bland, Douglas L., (author.). Macdonald-Laurier Institute, (issuing body.).


For all the meetings, plans and requests by prime ministers and native chiefs, conditions within some First Nations communities languish. While a growing number are improving, others suffer from severe deprivation. The poorer communities often seethe with frustration. Expectations raised by legal victories and government announcements seem to lead nowhere, or fall away. As the frustrations of unfulfilled expectations rise, anger in the communities festers, especially among young people. The outcome? An idea that most Canadians would have seen as preposterous a year ago, but which is now very real: the possibility of a disruptive confrontation between Canada's Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities.
