Hans -

Believe me, I am sympathetic to the cause of aboriginal rights. But in the case of demanding the GG participate in meetings or negotiations I don't think it is right and more importantly I don't see the point. The GG is a figurehead and the PM has the real power and authority. That's who I would want to talk to.

Well, he is an isn't a figurehead. I have seen no argument yet that clearly says the GG does not have a role on the treaty stuff but the discussion is not actually over the treaties. It is over new policy - or aboriginal right that in that is where the the duty to consult resides.
