The Settlement of Native Claims
Keywords:Energy Law, Petroleum Law
AbstractAfter stressing the urgency of settling native land claims, the author in his speech suggests that legalistic' approach to the problem should be abandoned. The James Bay Agreement is discussed as an example of how one such claim was dealt with and, drawing upon his personal experiences with the Agreement, the author suggests that it is the political aspects of particular claim that will govern in the end. Further, it is suggested that the business community can play valuable role in native land claim settlements.
