New eras and new relationships : an evaluation of the new relationship agreements in BC forest policy Donovan, Matthew


The New Relationship has been advertised as a crowning achievement of the BC Liberal Party. With the intent to foster an improved relationship and provide reconciliatory compensation, new agreements were written reflecting this mutual interest. More importantly, meaningful consultation and accommodation for interim infringements on First Nation claimed territory was to be provided. Through evaluating decision making authority and the consultation and accommodation offered within both New Relationship agreements and the Discussion Paper for the implementation of the Recognition Act, it is clear that this initiative has provided inadequate improvements.
