Manitoba Chiefs invite all Canadians to demand immediate repeal of Bills C-38 and C-45
The Chiefs of the First Nations in Manitoba invite all Canadians and non-‐ governmental organizations (NGOs) to join First Nations in requesting the immediate repeal of Bills C-‐38 and of C-‐45 as well as the repeal of any existing or proposed legislation that impact waters, fisheries and the environment.
The widespread changes to Canada’s legislative framework brought about by these two “omnibus” bills affects all Canadians, not just First Nations. These bills, which are now law, modify over 160 laws and regulations in numerous areas and weaken the legislative protections hard-‐won by all segments of the Canadian population over the last several decades.
