Collision of Rights: Freedom of Association and Aboriginal and Treaty Rights

Recent proceedings involving Applications for Certification of bargaining units within First Nation fisheries have raised a number of questions.  At the core is a potential conflict of interests and rights, such as employees’ right to unionize contrasted with the First Nations’ treaty right to fish for a “moderate livelihood” and the First Nations’ ability to eventually implement and self-govern this treaty right.
