Do you think it would be a good thing to dismantle the Indian Act?

John Borrows is an Anishinabe scholar and expert in Indigenous law.  He spoke at the U of A in 2016. There were many people waiting at the end of his presentation to ask a question or to talk so I sent an email to ask my question.

Do you think it would be a good thing to dismantle the Indian Act?

He replied,

“I do think it is a good thing to dismantle the Indian Act:”   He gave me two links, one for a document

and one for an audio file of a presentation   http://www.cbc.ca/player/play/2440344648
