Aboriginals & The Canadian Government

(Perspective/Ethical Judgement) Are Aboriginals treated like second class citizens in Canada? Use your understanding of history to explain why or why not

The government doesn’t treat aboriginals as same as second citizens. Aboriginals people are part of the first class citizens and having Aboriginals right to protect them. First class citizens can never have their citizenship taken away. On the other hand, Canadians with another nationality (and those who are eligible to obtain another nationality) now have second-class status, even if they were born in Canada: under Bill C-24, their citizenship can be stripped. In land claims, aboriginals peoples have their self-government and polices.
