C. — A British Columbia First Nation is one step closer to exerting control over its territory after a historic Supreme Court of Canada decision, with the announcement of several agreements with the provincial government. The high court’s decision last year meant the Tsilhqot’in Nation became the first in Canada to win title to its land, located west of Williams Lake in the B. C. Interior. The nation and the province issued a joint statement Friday saying they’ve had constructive talks in recent months on how to implement the ruling, resulting in several new interim deals. “ We’ve got a big vision we’re all as a nation working toward, and how we get there is just a matter of process,” Tsilhqot’in National Government vice- chairman Roger William said in an interview. “ The interim agreements are to get to the big vision.” The new deals involve issues including guide outfitters, emergency and wildfire response, road maintenance and land access for private property owners. The Tsilhqot’in has extended existing guide outfitter licences for one year, banning increases in guiding quotas in 2015 and allowing fees to be paid to the province and remitted to the nation. The nation has not authorized other hunting activities on its lands. William, who is also chief of the Xeni Gwet’in, one of six nations that make up the Tsilhqot’in, said the step was taken to provide “ business certainty” for guide outfitters while the nation develops its own policies. Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson said the agreement represents a new approach to resource management with the nation. The landmark Supreme Court of Canada ruling gave the nation the right to exclusively use, occupy and economically benefit from the land, as well as the ability to determine how it is used. In September, the Tsilhqot’in, Xeni Gwet’in and the province signed a letter of understanding in which they committed to create a framework for negotiations by March 31, 2015. Aboriginal Relations and Reconciliation Minister John Rustad said he expects the deadline will be met. Talks are continuing between the B. C. government and the nation’s leaders to hammer out permanent decisions on the issues the interim agreements address. But Rustad said the overall goal is reconciliation. “ These are interim steps to try and make sure that various things can flow and happen within that title territory, but also it’s one of the steps toward reaching that long- term reconciliation,” he said. Last October, Premier Christy Clark apologized for the wrongful hanging of six Tsilhqot’in chiefs in 1864 and 1865. Rustad said the ministry’s working group has met with the nation multiple times. “ There’s some frustration on both sides from time to time as you work through issues, and that’s to be expected in any negotiation and relationship,” he said. “ But I think at the core of it, there is a lot of optimism between the province and the Tsilhqot’in. — The Canadian Press Deals with B. C. bring control of native land closer OTTAWA — The Harper government was under mounting pressure on Friday to release the uncensored version of an internal Defence Department report on the suicide of Cpl. Stuart Langridge and to say how it will overhaul the tarnished military police branch. Both the political opposition and the family of Cpl. Stuart Langridge say stonewalling by Defence is unacceptable. Sheila Fynes, the soldier’s mother, wants Defence Minister Jason Kenney to force the military to act. “ We implore the minister to exercise true and genuine political leadership to bring the military to purposeful actions,” Fynes said in a statement issued through her lawyer. “ Our sons and daughters serving in the military, our veterans and military families deserve respect, compassion and genuine care from the military establishment. They also richly deserve to have a military justice system whose standards are at least equal to those available in civil society.” Speaking in Calgary, Kenney committed himself to meeting the family once he has reviewed a Military Police Complaints Commission report, which this week rebuked military investigators for their handling of Langridge’s suicide. Col. Rob Delaney, the provost marshal or chief of police of the Forces, has refused to detail how he will address the commission’s findings. He has suggested the Langridge investigation was an isolated and outdated incident. “ How does that kind of response wash?” asked Liberal defence critic Joyce Murray. “ It doesn’t wash. I think it’s a disgraceful response, and it shows the organization is not taking this seriously. And I don’t see evidence that the government is taking this seriously.” The military conducted a separate inquiry into the March 2008 suicide, and a censored version of that report released this week blames Langridge and his parents’ divorce for his mental- health issues and eventual death. In the Commons on Friday, Kenney’s parliamentary secretary James Bezan said the military watchdog’s findings show what happened in this case is completely unacceptable, and “ the inclusion of these remarks in the board of inquiry report is further evidence of how unacceptable it was.” — The Canadian Press Push grows on Ottawa to issue uncensored report into suicide By Murray Brewster A_ 29_ Mar- 14- 15_ FP_ 01. indd A29 3/ 13/ 15 10: 45: 54 PM
