Colossal Fossil

Published: October 22, 2010, Author: JayTaber

Continuing to obstruct indigenous human rights as it did at climate change talks in Copenhagen, the government of Canada is trying to block recognition of indigenous intellectual property in the Convention on Biological Diversity. As UN member states attempt to craft protocols for access, benefits and sharing of traditional knowledge in protecting the forests of indigenous peoples, Canada has done everything in its power to prevent their voices from even being heard. At this rate, Canada may again eclipse the United States for the Colossal Fossil Award.
