On Monday, Oct. 14, we have the unique and historic opportunity to meet with Professor James Anaya, the Special United Nations Rapporteur for Indigenous People. It is our conviction that Canada’s history with First Nations people was not just dark and brutal, but in fact constituted a “genocide” as defined by the 1948 UN Convention on Genocide. Unresolved issues regarding genocide can have the effect of holding back real progress in economic development in any community.
Listen to podcast of interview with Bernie Farber and William Schabas:
This article on whether Canada committed genocide against First Nations raises the question about Israel's treatment of Palestinians and Canada's role. You can read the interview with Phil Fontaine and Bernie Farber below in the Globe and Mail or you can hear an interview between Bernie Farber on the CBC podcast below.
