Madahbee says treaty rights-based agenda in Canada starts with tax exemption

Nipissing First Nation, Canada (NFN)

Grand Council Chief Patrick Madahbee chose the first day that Ontario retailers are to resume recognition of the First Nation point-of-sale tax exemption on Sept. 1, to announce that the Anishinabek Nation political agenda will be taking on a more rights-based focus.

“The province-wide campaign that the Anishinabek led against the Harmonized Sales Tax was ultimately successful,” said Madahbee, “but in the process we learned how little other governments, the media, and the general public know about aboriginal and treaty rights.

“Even after the province has sent out notices informing businesses that they must honour the rights of our citizens – on and off-reserve – to tax exemption, we are hearing stories of companies trying to gouge First Nations customers. These retailers are now breaking their own government’s laws, as well as ignoring First Nation rights.”
