The CBC reports:
As the Northwest Territories government plans for changes to major natural resource and environmental management legislation, the Council of Canadians says it's not living up to its commitments to Indigenous rights.
The N.W.T. chapter of the council penned a letter to Premier Bob McLeod on June 12, outlining its concerns that the post-devolution laws make no reference to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples nor to the human right to water.
