Canada is a democratic, multicultural country free from racism and violence. Canadian citizens are caring tolerant people that have a global reputation for peacekeeping.

How do Canadians come to understand and explain the vast inequalities that persist given this pervasive narrative?

Grand Narratives of Canadian Identity
1. Repeal provisions of Bill C-45 (including changes to the Indian Act and Navigable Waters Act, which infringe on environmental protections, Aboriginal and Treaty rights) and abandon all pending legislation which does the same.
2. Deepen democracy in Canada through practices such as proportional representation and consultation on all legislation concerning collective rights and environmental protections, and include legislation which restricts corporate interests.
3. In accordance with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, respect the right of Indigenous peoples to determine the development on their territories.
INM /Defenders of the Land Demands:

4. Cease its policy of extinguishment of Aboriginal title and recognize and affirm Aboriginal title and rights, as set out in section 35 of Canada’s constitution, and recommended by the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples.

5. Honour the spirit and intent of the historic Treaties. Officially repudiate the racist Doctrine of Discovery and the doctrine of Terra Nullius, and abandon their use to justify the seizure of Indigenous Nations lands and wealth.

6. Actively resist violence against women and hold a national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, and involve Indigenous women in the design, decision-making, process and implementation of this inquiry, as a step toward initiating a comprehensive and coordinated national action plan.
