British Columbia was the first jurisdiction in Canada to prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex. It was also at the forefront of the women's movement, which produced the country's first rape crisis centres, first feminist newspaper, and first battered women's shelters. Yet as recently as 1984 a woman could be dismissed from her job as a waitress for complaining about sexual harassment. In Equality Deferred, Dominique Clement traces the history of human rights law in Canada, with a focus on sex discrimination in British Columbia - beginning with the province's first equal pay legislation in 1953 and ending in 1984 with the collapse of the country's most progressive human rights legal regime. For an entire generation, the province's two dominant political parties fought to impose their respective vision of human rights law. Working from the previously undisclosed records of British Columbia's human rights commission, Clement documents a history of cases that dealt with absurd, almost unbelievable, acts of discrimination. Clement also explores British Columbia's turbulent political history to reveal how governments inhibit the application of their own laws, and how it falls to social movements to create, promote, and enforce these laws. This book is a testament to the revolutionary impact of human rights on Canadian law but also a reminder that it takes more than laws to effect transformative social change.

  • Treaties, reserves, and fisheries law
  • Land follows fish
  • Exclusive fisheries
  • Exclusive fisheries and the public right to fish
  • Indian reserves and fisheries
  • Constructing an Indian food fishery
  • Licensing the commercial salmon fishery
  • Land and fisheries detached.
"Landing Native Fisheries" reveals the contradictions and consequences of an Indian land policy premised on access to fish, on one hand, and a program of fisheries management intended to open the resource to newcomers, on the other. Beginning with the first treaties signed on Vancouver Island between 1850 and 1854, Douglas Harris maps the connections between the colonial land policy and the law governing the fisheries. In so doing, Harris rewrites the history of colonial dispossession in British Columbia, offering a new and nuanced examination of the role of law in the consolidation of power within the colonial state.

The Indian reserve geography of British Columbia was built around the fisheries. The small, scattered parcels of reserved land were intended to secure a fishing economy, but little more. The regime of fisheries law introduced to the province in the late nineteenth century constructed fish as a common property resource. The fisheries were to be open to all. As a result, while land followed fish in the allotment of Indian reserves, fish were detached from land and Native livelihoods in the regulation of the fishery."Landing Native Fisheries" reveals the contradictions and the consequences of an Indian land policy premised on access to fish and a program of fisheries management intended to open the resource to newcomers. Beginning with the first treaties signed on Vancouver Island between 1850 and 1854, Harris maps the connections between the colonial land policy and the fisheries law and policy. In doing so, Harris rewrites the history of colonial dispossession in British Columbia and offers fresh insights into the role of law in the consolidation of power within the colonial state." Landing Native Fisheries" will interest students, scholars, policy makers, and general readers interested in the history of law and colonialism, BC history, treaty making and land claims, Native-newcomer relations, and the history of fisheries.

The British Columbia Treaty Process was established in 1992 with the aim of resolving the outstanding land claims of First Nations peoples in British Columbia. Since that time, two discourses have been prominent within the treaty negotiations taking place between First Nations and the governments of Canada and British Columbia. The first, that of justice, asks how we can remedy the past injustices that were imposed on BC's First Nations through the removal of their lands and forced assimilation. The second, that of certainty, asks whether this historical repair can occur in a manner that provides a better future for all British Columbians. In Between Justice and Certainty, Andrew Woolford examines the interplay between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal visions of justice and certainty in the first decade of the BC Treaty Process and poses the question: Is there a space between justice and certainty in which modern treaties can be made? Through interviews, field research, and an overview of archival and modern treaty documents, he argues that the goal of certainty is overriding the demand for justice in the treaty process, and suggests that greater attention to justice is necessary if we are to initiate a process of reconciliation between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples in BC. Between Justice and Certainty is recommended reading for sociologists, anthropologists, historians, political scientists, and legal scholars interested in how we deal with past injustices, as well as for anyone wishing to learn more about the BC Treaty Process.
