George and Terry Goulet have produced an article this week about the late Harry Daniels, whose work lives on today through the historic Federal Court of Appeal Ruling in the Daniels Case. Many Metis people may not be aware of the views and information about what Harry Daniels stood for and George and Terry have done a tremendous job sharing important insight.
There are only two men in the history of the Métis People who were the prime instrumental forces in having the Métis enshrined in Canada’s Constitution – Louis Riel in section 31 of the 1870 Manitoba Act and Harry Daniels in section 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982. If the Daniels Decision of April 17, 2014 by the Federal Court of Appeal is upheld on further appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, section 91 (24) of the Constitution Act, 1867 can be added as an additional achievement by Harry Daniels.
