Changes To Constitution Act

The MP for Kenora says it's too early to comment on a Federal Court ruling in favour of off-reserve Metis and non-status Indians.  The Court has ruled that they are indeed "Indians" under the Constitution Act and they fall under federal jurisdiction.  Greg Rickford offers his reaction.  Rickford says this a lower court decision that Aboriginal Affairs will take time to carefully review.
