Federal Government to Sign Maa-Nulth Treaty

The Federal government will sign the Maa-Nulth Treaty (Vancouver Island) on Thursday April 9, 20009. From the WestCoaster.ca:

During a ceremony scheduled to take place in Port Alberni Thursday, the federal government will sign the Maa-nulth Treaty. The federal government is the last government to sign the tripartite treaty. Already, the Maa-nulth bands and the provincial government have ratified the deal.

“It means it’s real,” said hereditary Chief Anne Mack, of the Toquaht First Nation. “We can now really take steps forward.”

The Maa-nulth include the Ucluelet, Toquaht, Uchucklesaht, Kyuquot and Huu-ay-aht First Nations.
