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.
