In April 2009, the Court of Appeal for British Columbia ruled in the case of McIvor v. Canada that certain registration provisions of the Indian Act were unconstitutional because they violated the equality provision of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Mathieya Alatini grew up on the Shores of Kluane Lake near Burwash Landing. She was part of a generation who had the opportunity to attend the First Nation operated Keetsa’dun ku School. She attended high school and University in Victoria BC and graduated with a degree in Commerce from the University of Victoria.
October 6, 2013 marked the last day of the Road upgrades project. The main roads in Burwash and Copper Joe are now raised and smoothed. The ditches and drainage are now properly completed. The final step will come in the Spring of 2014 when the road surfaces are hard topped. Everyone is excited for smooth roads, especially the children who want to ride bikes and skateboards!
