Excerpt
Excerpt: I am the co-chair of the Lubicon Settlement Commission of Review, a group of Canadian citizens of all walks of life and background who have made a thorough study of the Lubicon case and brought forward specific recommendations to help the process along. The previous government, we found out, had stifled all possibilities of a just resolution by a take-it-or-leave-it offer that would have condemned the Lubicon people to a future of welfare, a situation which would destroy their dignity and their future as human beings. The Lubicon would have had to sign away all their aboriginal rights prior to entering into negotiations. There were no solid provisions made for economic development nor for compensation for decades of neglect, lost benefits and lost income from oil and gas development on their traditional land, not to mention the destruction of their traditional way of life which had allowed them to be self sustaining for generations before oil and gas development invaded their world.
