Iroquois Falls, Canada

On the Indian and Northern Affairs website it is explained that transfer payments beyond the amounts granted in the Treaties to Native bands are tied to resource development. If no development occurs or the band refuses development, the transfer payments should revert to the original amount treatied. All payments to the Bands within the withdrawn areas around KI should rightly have been adjusted upon signing of the withdrawal. No resource value is being developed on the lands so no Government funds should be alloted for those areas. The SCC concurs with this position in that their rulings dictate that the Natives must be compensated for impacts to their treaty and traditional rights. No entry and no development means no impact, therefore no transfer payments beyond the amont originally treatied are legally required.
Just sayin .
