“People have to understand, precedent has been set. We don’t have to prove title. It’s there. A lot of the work has been done. They can’t just do as they please now.”

This is the sentiment leading the charge behind the Nuchatlaht First Nation civil lawsuit which they have filed against the Federal and British Columbia provincial government.

Jack Woodward, lawyer, is representing the Nuchatlaht. He says, “All other Canadians expect that if they’re left land in a will, if their ancestors owned something, then they’re entitled to own it.”

Stay tuned for further updates on this case.
