Edmonton -- A delegation representing the Lubicon Lake band travels to 
Geneva this week to ask a United Nations panel to condemn Canada for 
failing to resolve its long-standing land-rights dispute.

"Canada should already be embarrassed that 15 years after the UN ruled 
against them they still haven't fixed the problem," said Kevin Thomas, 
an adviser to the Lubicon Cree band. He was referring to criticism made 
in 1990 by a UN human-rights panel over Canada's handling of the dispute.

The band has been fighting for a reserve first promised by Ottawa in 
1939. CP
