Deceased Mètis leader Harry Daniels led the original legal action in the 1999 when he had sought to have the court clarify whether Ottawa or the Provinces were responsible for the more than 600,000 Aboriginal peoples across Canada who are either Metis or live off-reserve. This case was advanced to address issues such as:
Access to the same health-care, education and other benefits made available to status Indians; Being allowed to hunt, trap, fish and gather on public lands; and, The ability to negotiate and enter into treaties with the federal government.
