Beyond the Nass Valley: National Implications of the Supreme Court's Delgamuukw Decision
On December 11th 1997, then Chief Justice Antonio Lamer of the Supreme Court of Canada radically rewrote how the law requires the resolution of Aboriginal land claims. His decision in the long-running case, Delgamuukw vs. British Columbia, expanded the substance of Aboriginal title and created new ways to determine its presence, including oral testimony. Though the case originated in British Columbia, it has the potential to influence all regions of Canada. In July 1998 and April 1999, the Fraser Institute held conferences to explore the national implications of the decisions. Thirty top law professors, economists, and researchers contributed papers now brought together in this volume, bringing together the Native and non-Native perspectives on the topic.
