First Nations win case over $4 benefit

Did other provinces sign a similar treaty? If so, this ruling will be reviewed carefully and more than likely lawsuits will be filed.

SUDBURY, Ont. — The provincial and federal governments have been short-changing First Nations in Ontario for more than a century, a superior court judge ruled last week as she ordered long-stagnant annual payments be raised.

The court found that the Crown has “a mandatory and reviewable obligation” to increase the annuity under the Robinson-Huron Treaty, which was signed in 1850.

Justice Patricia Hennessy wrote that it’s the Crown’s duty to fulfil the treaty’s promise to increase the payments over time.

What a shock? More lawsuits?

Don't go get a full pull paid for education or trade training. Just hire a lawyer.

Money seems to be reconciliation.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.
