Canada: Connecting our past to our future: The Long Point First Nation of Canada.
The Long Point First Nation have been repeatedly uprooted from their lands to make way for industrial developments. The community is now under mounting pressure from the federal government to become an "Indian reserve" under the Indian Act. Despite these pressures, the Long Point First Nation continue to defend their lands, culture and way of life. In this document Amnesty International calls on the Canadian authorities to resume negotiations on traditional land rights and economic development and to respect all rights of the First Nation under national and international law.
