NWT Métis Nation seeks $120M in compensation for 80 years of lost hunting rights in nat'l park


The Northwest Territory Métis Nation is asking the federal government for $120 million in compensation and the inclusion of the history of how Métis hunters and trappers lost their traditional hunting rights soon after the Wood Buffalo National Park was established in 1922.

The Wood Buffalo National Park is the country's largest national park. It was established, in part, to help protect the wood bison and other at-risk species in the area.
