The Association of Political Science Students (APSS) had an excellent turnout for it’s February event – a panel discussion on “Aboriginal Politics Today” that featured Professor Peter Russell and Nelson Wiseman.

The purpose of this talk was to serve as a general introduction to contemporary Aboriginal Politics in Canada.

“Aboriginal political issues seem always to be on the national consciousness,” says Cameron Wood, a member of the APSS Executive. “However, there seems to be a general lack of knowledge on the basic policy proposals.”

Photos from the panel discussion have been uploaded to the Department’s Facebook page, here.
