"When it comes to native land claims, it's all smoke and no fire. Governments drag their feet as long as they want to. If you're native, it's an important issue; if you're not, you should be concerned because it presents Canada in a particular light on the international stage. Other countries watch the land rights movement and draw conclusions about us as a people and what we say and what we do. And what we say is one thing - what we do is another."
