Title: The Supreme Court Needs to Consider Both Common Law and Aboriginal Law When Resolving Land Disputes
Author: McNeil, Kent
Identifier: 00015
Abstract: The Delgamuukw approach to resolving Aboriginal land claims is superior to both a strict common law approach and a strict Aboriginal law approach. It acknowledges the unique qualities of Aboriginal title, and provides Aboriginal peoples with the legal support for their inherent right of self-government.
