Musqueam Appove Land Deal

The Musqueam First Nation has voted to accept a land and cash deal connected to the UBC Golf Course and Pacific Spirit Park. The vote was overwhelming at 98%. This deal has been the subject of controversy — and has brought questions about land claims, treaties, and aboriginal rights into the middle of the affluent west side of the city of Vancouver. The deal was completed under the provincial government’s process of reconciliation with native communities.
