The Indian Act: What to do with it

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Created more than 150 years ago, the Indian Act has structured relations between the federal government and Indigenous people for generations. And in the eyes of many, its purpose was and still is, to assimilate, control, and even destroy the people and communities that come under its jurisdiction. In 2017, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau promised to scrap it. That hasn't happened. The Agenda discusses what should be done about the archaic legislation.
