Ross Eadie: "We are all Treaty People"

4y ago


Winnipeg, July 11, 2012: Several hundred Winnipeggers marched from the Forks National Historic Site to the TD Centre near the corner of Portage and Main in support of a call by the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs for a national public inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in Canada. Among the many speakers was Winnipeg City Councillor Ross Eadie who declared "We are all Treaty People" -- a reference to the rights and responsibilities that flow from historic treaties signed between the government of Canada and First Nations across the country.
