Tom Isaac was interviewed by Business in Vancouver (BiV) for the article “Expert Sees Long Road Ahead in Settling Aboriginal Law.”
Writes Nelson Bennett: “For Canadian business, especially the resource and energy sectors, no other legal matter in Canada is more important or has more impact than Aboriginal law. To help shed light on the current landscape with respect to Aboriginal rights and title, the apparent failure of the B.C. treaty process and attempts by governments to implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP), Business in Vancouver spoke with Tom Isaac, who is recognized as one of Canada’s foremost legal experts in Canadian Aboriginal law.”
The ensuing question and answers look at recent decisions in Aboriginal law, the duty to consult, Aboriginal rights and title and the treaty process.
