This Time 39 Years Ago – July 1985

2024-07-04T23:11:51+00:00

Times Colonist: Jul 18, 1985 The Tsawout Indian Band is prepared to go to the Supreme Court of Canada to prevent a 500-boat marina development in Saanichton Bay, says councilor Gus Underwood.    “We’re prepared to take whatever measures are necessary,” he said. “We’ll carry our fight to the highest court in the land to get justice.”    Central Saanich council con Monday issued a development permit for the marina.    The band claims the development on the 6.15-hectare site is contrary to the 1858 James Douglas Treaty, which guaranteed Saanich Indians hunting and fishing rights.    Underwood, who was out of town and [...]

Times Colonist: Jul 16, 1985    Central Saanich council unanimously approved issuing a development permit for a 500-boat marina in Saanichton Bay Monday despite warnings from native Indians that development is contrary to the James Douglas Treaty.    Council’s action paves the way for a request for a building permit by Saanichton Marina Ltd.    The area has been zoned for marina use for 16 years.    “The Indian people of Saanich demand that you respect the terms of the treaty,” said Tsawout band manager Earl Claxton.     “In return for making lands available for non-Indian settlement, including the lands where this council is debating [...]

This Time 10 Years Ago – July 2014

2024-07-04T23:29:06+00:00

Times Colonist: Jul 6, 2014 SARAH PETRESCU Times Colonist B.C. policies that do not give First Nations burial grounds the same protection as cemeteries are discriminatory and out of date, says Tseycum Chief Vern Jacks.   Jacks and other local aboriginal leaders have been fighting to protect a small island in Ganges Harbour where human remains and burial cairns were found in 2006.    Because the burial site dates from before 1846, it is managed under the Heritage Conservation Act – not the Cremation, Interment and Funeral Services Act, which offers greater protection.    “The laws are racist,” Jacks said.  “We’re tired of [...]

Times Colonist: Jul 1, 1984    Women are discriminated against under the Indian Act, and women should be consulted on ways to end the discrimination, says Rusty Underwood, co-ordinator of the Tsawout Native Women’s Association.    But the Native Indian organizations who are talking to the federal government about ways of amending a law that allows sexual discrimination against Indian women are mainly headed by men, she said.    “Although Native women are voicing their concerns, they continue to have minimal participation in these negotiations.” said Underwood. “It’s time for the women to be heard.”    On the Tsawout reserve in Central Saanich women [...]
