Sample text

In 1994 and 1995 a cycle of armed conflict, repression, tense ceasefires, failed peace talks, and low-intensity war fare finally led the government to pass the Law for Dialogue, Reconciliation and a Just Peace in Chiapas. The law called for a suspension of military operations and for peace talks. It also established the Commission of Pacification and Agreement (COCOPA) to coordinate the dialogue between the government and the EZLN. Over the next several months the seemingly irreconcilable differences between the government and the EZLN, especially over the negotiability of national issues, prevented the initiation of peace talks.

Section 35(1) is plainly material if applicable treaty or land claims agreements can be found. But under Delgamuukw, "existing" rights also include those that are unrecorded. In combination with the several other pertinent constitutional interpretations, discussed by Lajoie and others in chapter 7, below, understanding §35(1) as a doctrine leaves little doubt that Aboriginal peoples have an inherent right that allows for Aboriginal initiative in forming their own governments. It would seem that Aboriginal peoples have a sufficient legal basis for self-government within the Confederation, even if not through sovereignty and not outside the Canadian Constitution.

The shift from trade to settled agriculture and manufacture caused the trading treaties to decline, and the new technologies led to the overexploitation of wildlife, undermining Aboriginal economies and forcing Aboriginal peoples into relations of dependency. These factors and others upset the balance of power that underlay the rough equality of the treaty relationship. The prevailing view of the world of (English and French) Europeans and European-Canadians in the nineteenth century served to legitimate the colonial relationship.
