In February 2006, First countries protesters blocked employees from coming into a housing improvement in southern Ontario. The protest highlighted the problem of land rights and sparked a chain of ongoing occasions often called the “Caledonia Crisis.” This strong account of the dispute hyperlinks the activities of police, officers, and locals to non-Aboriginal discourses approximately legislation, panorama, and identification. DeVries encourages non-Aboriginal Canadians to re-evaluate their assumptions, to view “facts” akin to the rule of thumb of legislations as culturally particular notions that hinder actually equitable discussion. She seeks out attainable options in substitute conceptualizations of sovereignty over land and legislations embedded within the structure.
