CBC launches Aboriginal portal

CBC is launching a comprehensive, media-rich website called CBC ABORIGINAL. The official website launch coincides with National Aboriginal Day on June 21, and brings together CBC’s coverage of aboriginal issues on CBC Television, Newsworld, Radio and

National Aboriginal Day also focuses attention on the continuing problems of aboriginal peoples.

The Assembly of First Nations is calling for a day of action on June 29 to raise awareness and support for aboriginal issues. The recently released report of the judicial inquiry into the shooting death of native protester Dudley George at Ipperwash, Ontario, adds an important voice to the call for action on 900 unresolved treaty claims.
