A roadmap for success....

I'll make a bet that this decision will pay off big time...
A northwestern B.C. First Nation has approved a revolutionary land reform deal, making it the first in Canada to approve private property rights.

After years of discussion and debate, the Nisga'a Lisims government has quietly passed the Nisga'a Landholding Transition Act.

The move means that sometime next year Nisga'a citizens will have the chance to own their own homes on what used to be collectively owned native land in B.C.'s Nass river Valley, north of Terrace.

They will also be able to mortgage their property or transfer, bequeath, lease, or sell it to anyone they choose, aboriginal or non-aboriginal. The system will be voluntary and all private land will remain subject to Nisga'a laws.
