This Thursday, November 24, Canadian Lawyers Abroad (CLA) is presenting the documentary “The Mushuau Innu. Surviving Canada”. It looks at the 1993 Canadian Human Rights Commission’s report which found that the Federal government had been in violation of the Innu’s constitutional rights for more than 50 years, and explores the devastating impact these violations have had on the Innu and their future as a people.
It will be at 6:00pm in room 001. Food will be provided (pizza!). We will watch the documentary (about 45min in length) and also talk about some of the internship opportunities CLA offers both internationally and in Canada’s north.
