Who controls the hunt? : First Nations, treaty rights, and wildlife conservation in Ontario, 1783-1939 / David Calverley ; foreword by Graeme Wynn.


"As the nineteenth century ended, the popularity of sport hunting grew and Ontario wildlife became increasingly valuable. <i>Who Controls the Hunt?</i> examines how the provincial wildlife conservation laws that emerged in response reconciled--or failed to reconcile--First Nations treaty rights and the power of the state. David Calverley traces the political and legal arguments arising from the interplay of Ojibwa treaty rights, provincial and dominion government interests, and the corporate concerns of the Hudson's Bay Company. This nuanced examination of resource issues, constitutional questions, conservation paradigms, and historical factors particular to First Nations has regional focus but national relevance."-- Provided by publisher.
