Outstanding specific claims are million – potentially billion – dollar debts owed to First Nations by the crown.

Rob Smith travels to Ontario to visit the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation and learn about their $145-million claim.

The federal government under Stephen Harper hatched a system, called Justice at Last, to deal with these claims back in 2007.

Is the process working?

Watch #RippedOff to see Rob uncover a real, human struggle behind the bureaucracy; Indigenous people fighting to reclaim their lands and their dignity.
