Scope and contentThis file contains a presentation by four members of the Lubicon Settlement Commission of Review. The Commission of Review was organized in [1992] and launched by Ray Martin, Leader of the Opposition, Government of Alberta. Their mandate was to investigate, compare, assess and report on the presentation of the Lubicons to the two levels of government and to report to the three parties and to the public. The Commission of Review in March 1993 tabled their report before the public with the Lubicons present. Both levels of government were not present despite repeated invitations. The Commission of the Review states that the compensation requested by the Lubicons was fair. The compensation was based on the Fulton Report and on the value of the resources that have been removed from that land, with none of those benefits flowing to the Lubicon people. A lengthy question-and-answer session with the Commissioners follows the presentation.
