The BC Treaty Process
This page is currently under construction. Eventually, it will contain background information on the BC treaty process, links to related sites, and so on.
For information on VARC's role in the treaty process, refer to the South Island Regional Advisory Committee page.
Does VARC support the treaty process?
Although many ARC members are wary of the treaty process and are concerned about the structure of the talks and the kinds of concessions being demanded by the Federal and Provincial governments, it is VARC's official position that, provided that the leaders and negotiators for the First Nation in question have the legitimate support of the people whom they represent, VARC supports that Nation's decision to enter into the treaty process and conclude a treaty.
(Note: This is an unofficial statement of VARC's position on the treaty process. This page will eventually include a detailed, official statement regarding VARC's position.)
