Human rights

The topic of Thunder Bay brings to mind a range of articles that I’ve recently come across dealing with human rights.

Such topics help to contextualize the outlines of land and lakes observed in the two photographs at this post. In my view, legal approaches are helpful in establishing contexts for evidence-based conversations regarding such topics.

A book that first gave rise to my interest in human rights in the context of First Nations land claims is: “A Long and Terrible Shadow: White Values, Native Rights in the Americas, 1492-1992 (1991) by Thomas R. Berger.

A July 13, 2014 CBC article, of interest regarding these topics, is entitled: “Government bracing for court battles over navigable waterways: Documents reveal bureaucrats warned of likely legal challenges.”


A July 14, 2014 CBC article is entitled: “Tsilhqot’in ruling to be a focus at First Nations’ meeting in Halifax.”

An April 15, 2016 Globe and Mail article by Bob Rae is entitled: “Attawapiskat is not alone: Suicide crisis is national problem.”

An Aug. 10, 2016 CBC article is entitled: “Popular theory on how humans populated North America can’t be right, study shows.”

An Aug. 22, 2016 Toronto Star article is entitled: “Sixties Scoop survivors’ day in court finally arrives Tuesday: Indigenous Canadians taken from their homes and their culture suing Ottawa, decades later, over the federal government’s duty to them.”
