Wonder how big the results would be


Canada’s Supreme Court to consider whether Native Americans in U.S. have rights north of the border

It was a frosty October morning when Richard Desautel aimed his Mauser 98 bolt-action rifle at a cow elk in the Arrow Lakes area of British Columbia, shot the animal dead and phoned wildlife conservation officers to report what he’d done.

That call, made a decade ago this month, set into motion a plan that was years in the making. Authorities charged Desautel, a U.S. citizen and member of the Lakes Tribe of the Colville Confederated Tribes in Washington state, with hunting without a license and hunting big game while not a resident of British Columbia.

It was what Desautel wanted. It gave him the opportunity to argue that he was exercising his right under Canada’s constitution to hunt for ceremonial purposes on the traditional land of his ancestors, the Sinixt, an Indigenous group that Canada declared extinct more than 60 years ago.

Would native Americans have rights in Canada ? Sure they would be landed immigrants.  8)

Under the Jay Treaty Natives with 50% or more bloodlines can freely cross the border to work and live without restrictions.

Has that been restricted due to the current border restrictions?

Not really Dimsum

We had and still have plenty of FNs from the states coming up here (Maniwaki, qc). Mostly New York plates.
