Letter to PM Harper re. UNDRIP from Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada

The Reverend Susan C. Johnson, National Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, has at the request of the ELCIC National Convention written a letter to Prime Minister Harper encouraging the Canadian government “to fully and effectively implement the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and to provide the Parliament of Canada with regular reports on how the Government will reform laws and policies in order to meet the Declaration’s standards.”  In her letter, Bishop Johnson notes “the word ‘treaty’ is a synonym for the word ‘covenant.’ There are moral and spiritual dimensions to making and keeping covenants.”
