Which prevails, the Charter or the Vuntut Gwitchin Constitution? The Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation enacted their own Constitution providing for the selection of political leaders based on their traditional laws, and their right to self-government. In a recent case, that Constitution was challenged using the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
Join lawyer and PhD candidate Ryan Beaton, University of Victoria, as he reviews the recent Vuntut Gwitchin decision from the Yukon Supreme Court, and addresses the complexities of considering Indigenous Law, and section 25 of the Charter.
