In Canada, the gbr agreements between First Nations and the Province of British Columbia are one of the strongest examples of reconciliation-oriented agreements, promoting the protection of ecosystems within the GBR, and promoting the economic development and social well-being of First Nations and local communities in the region by changing provincial jurisdiction. See “Coastal First Nations,” “Why a Coastal Alliance,” online: ; Smith – Sterritt, “Shared Vision,” supra rating 10 to 136-37. While the Joint Solutions Project`s statement of intent recognized that coastal forests were part of traditional First Nations territories and that any agreement did not affect aboriginal rights and title, Aboriginal communities objected to bilateral negotiations as an injustice because they prevented RR communities from being directly and judiciously involved in land use planning and management.  During this period, in 2000, First Nations created the Coastal First Nations Organization to act as a collective voice and ensure that their unique interests are realized in this international forum.  Art Sterritt, who served as Executive Director of Coastal First Nations throughout the G6 negotiations, described the process as follows: scholars` views on the extent (and potential of reconciliation) differ. Legal experts have taken a broader view of reconciliation. For Aboriginal rights to be seen as a means of reconciliation in Section 35, reconciliation cannot be construed as the absence of infringement. On the contrary, the rights of Aboriginal people “must be seen as flexible and forward-looking rights, which must be adapted and renewed from time to time through negotiation with the peoples concerned.”  Reconciliation on the basis of relationships involves “sincere acts of mutual respect, tolerance and goodwill that serve to heal the gaps and lay the foundations for a harmonious relationship” and goes beyond the compatibility of Aboriginal interests with the development of natural resources or economic interests defined by the Crown.  It will lead indigenous laws created by communities that “have neither lost their right nor renounced the development and maintaining of their own laws.”  Reconciliation therefore does not derive entirely from indigenous or colonial law: “[I] is a form of inter-society law that has developed from long-standing practices that connect different communities.”  Nuxalk Nation chiefs and members have called on other First Nations and coastal supporters to protect and protect the “Ista”, also known as Fog Creek on King Island, a place of particular historical significance, from logging between 1995 and 1997.
