  • Robert Normey



This article examines the past 100 years of Aboriginal litigation at the Alberta Court of Appeal. It begins by describing pre-Charter cases related to historical hunting rights. It then examines cases related to division of power issues before describing cases concerning religious freedom, freedom to associate, and equality rights. Afterwards, cases concerning post-Charter Aboriginal and Métis hunting rights are discussed. Finally, the concepts of honour of the Crown and fiduciary duty are considered.
