    First Nations from British Columbia win major land title decision


    The highest court in Canada issued a landmark decision today, recognizing Native title in British Columbia and defining what it means.
    The Tsilhqot’in Nation, a coalition of First Nations, laid claim to about 656 square miles in the western region of the province. The Supreme Court of Canada affirmed their title to the land and said they have a right to use, enjoy and profit from it.
