Harper Government Propose Private Property Rights

6 Aug

For Natives(but not for the rest of us…)

“We intend to move on our commitment to implement legislation to allow on-reserve property rights,” the official confirmed. “There is solid support from first nations for this and we’ll work with them.” There is no word on when the government intends to introduce the bill.

Shockingly “many” Native Mob Bosses  Leaders oppose the plan…

Band councils fear that, beyond offending traditional communal approaches to land ownership, transferable property rights could lead to non-natives taking control of land on reserves.

For the same reason, many chiefs also oppose Bill S-2, which would protect the matrimonial property rights of women living on reserves if their marriages end.

Perhaps they are concerned about white eye buying up the land and removing the old cars…
