Very interesting how the Canadian government cruelly treated the fist Canadian people
The most profound concept here is that we should have acted on the recommendations and if not we will be looking at the same issues in 20 years.
Wondering if the second article here “A summary of the Royal proclamation” should have a different link attached to it. When I click on it, it takes me to an article on the Royal Commission. I did a quick search of the site and found this article which does provide a summary of the royal proclamation. https://thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/royal-proclamation-of-1763-plain-language-summary
Thanks for all the resources and challenging us to dig deeper!
Thanks Peter, you’re right! It’s fixed now.
