S1 Episode 3 Lifting the Lie of Denial with Bruce McIvor
Our baby podcast is taking it’s third step! Please help us find our feet by rating, reviewing, and subscribing to “RAVEN (De)Briefs” on iTunes, or wherever you get your podcasts!
We are incredibly excited to share Episode 3 of RAVEN (De)Briefs with very special guest Bruce McIvor. For those of you familiar with his work, you’ll know he is both an eminent authority on Aboriginal Law and an incredible ally to Indigenous People, teaching at UBC law school as well as helming a busy law practice dedicated to defending and advancing Indigenous rights.
In this episode, Bruce McIvor speaks to the promise, and challenge, of pursuing Indigenous rights through the courts. We’ll look at the recent decisions on the Coldwater Trans Mountain pipeline cases that RAVEN supporters backed, and how limiting the scope of consultation failed to honour the spirit of the Constitution.
We will also hear from RAVEN’s Campaigns Director Ana Simeon about the exciting new climate challenge launched by Wet’suwet’en. Ana speaks passionately about this case and its potential to protect the rights of not only Indigenous Peoples but of all Canadians.
Join us for a lively, story-filled episode that will unpack some misconceptions around whose land this is, anyway: and, how we can all be part of reshaping this country we call home.
