“We’re not asking for amendments to these acts. We are actually asking that the Saskatchewan first and the Alberta Sovereignty Within a United Canada Act, be withdrawn.”
That was the message from Assembly of First Nations National Chief RoseAnne Archibald, along with the Confederacy of Treaty Six First Nations and the G4 in Treaty 7 Territory at a news conference on Wednesday morning.

Treaty 6, 7 and the AFN put forward the emergency resolution at the Special Chiefs Assembly in Ottawa.
