The UN special rapporteur for the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, James Anaya, claims he is being prevented by the Harper government from entering Canada to evaluate the conditions of Canadian aboriginals. To enter Canada the UN official requires an official invitation by the Canadian government. In February 2012 Anaya requested this invite and yet he claims to be still waiting for a response. In recent months international Human Rights observers have slammed the Canadian government’s mistreatment of First Nations peoples. Joshua Blakeney updated Press TV viewers. Interview conducted on March 15, 2013.
