In the other, the NHM becomes a beacon that projects these values to the international community in an attempt to legitimise Canada as an actor in global society.

The specific XA constellation of ideas in which a concept is located may XS XS vary between sources and even contradict one another, although my general goal is to identify general trends that can be observed within Canadian Holocaust memory.
At its simplest, a binary system contains two opposing ele- ments that are fundamentally at odds and cannot be rec- onciled with one another.

So while the emerging rights framework is certainly limited and based on the flawed presumption of Canadian sovereignty over Indigenous lands and peoples, this new channel of dialogue with the Crown for the Métis National Council, its five governing members, and the Métis Settlement General Council is itself a fairly profound development.
