NewsINDIAN ACT HAS TO GO SHARE ON: Tim Rout, staff Friday, Apr. 15th, 2016The Indian Act turned 140 years old this week and Ontario’s Regional Chief says it’s time it was abolished. Isadore Day says the Act is the root cause of the social trauma that affects First Nations right across the country. The Act details how the feds interact with Aboriginal communities.
