In addition to serving as Editor of this authoritative publication, Tom provided both the preface and the chapter on British Columbia’s enactment of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act. In addition, Jeremy Barretto, Viviana Berkman, David Hansford, Emilie Lahaie, and Grace Wu all contributed to chapters in this publication.
