Siddon that the Lubicons are neither prepared to have the Canadian Courts determine compensation for illegal expropriation of unceded Lubicon lands nor to forgo their aboriginal land rights in order to have compensation arbitrated.
Siddon commenced the February 21st meeting by stating that he was prepared to confirm that the full 95 square mile area agreed at Grimshaw in October of 1988 would be recognized as reserve lands.
Tom Siddon, Federal Indian Affairs Minister I was very happy with the meeting today but I think it's important that the Chief discuss with his people some of the matters we discussed and we hope to meet again soon, very soon.

Siddon: Well, if you were to look at the elements of the proposal you'd find that the cost to build and construct a fully modern community adequate to the number of people here and all of the necessary infrastructure, as with other communities we've been constructing across Canada, would be between $30 and $45 million.
Tom Siddon, Federal Minister of Indian Affairs: I'm not going to get into elements of the matters which we've been discussing with Chief Ominayak and with the Province of Alberta until we have an agreement, so there's no question of talking about bottom lines or the details of that today.
Siddon, whose visit to the community 580 kilometres northwest of Edmonton was the first by an Indian Affairs Minister, said he felt it was important to go.

 New Promise of Lubicon Negotiations
Siddon says the Lubicon's claim to a traditional 7,000-square-miles is not valid because the Lubicon's rights were dealt with in a treaty signed by natives in the area in 1899.
Siddon claims that "both governments have indicated publicly their willingness to negotiate but the band has consistently refused to resume negotiations"; that "Federal negotiator Brian Malone remains anxious to meet Ominayak" and that "The federal government remains committed to resolving this major land claim".
Siddon claimed that "the Alberta and federal governments have made a substantial offer to the Lubicon Lake band" which "the United Nations human rights committee has considered to be an appropriate remedy to the situation..." In fact that's not what the committee said or intended.

 Tom Siddon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Siddon proved to be a hard working and competent MP, and was promoted to the Minister of Fisheries and Oceans position on November 21, 1985, in the wake of the tunagate scandal that had forced the resignation of previous minister, John Fraser.
Siddon thus attempted to impose stiff quotas on the catch, despite the protests of fishers and the destruction of whole communities as fish processing plants closed throughout the Atlantic provinces.
Siddon's greatest legacy and success was also achieved as Minister of Indian Affairs with the agreement in 1992 to create the new territory of Nunavut.

 Nunatsiaq News
Northern Affairs Minister Tom Siddon announced last Friday that he has accepted a special advisor's recommendation on a boundary to divide the Nunavut land claim settlement area from the various regional Dene-Metis claim areas.
In his report to Siddon, Parker recommended giving a large sector in the south-west end of the sanctuary to the Dene, while the northern and eastern sections would be put in the Nunavut settlement area.
Siddon's special advisor had no recommendations to make about a third bone of contention between Dene and Inuit, which involves claims to the southern Keewatin by Chipewyan bands from Northern Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

 Mar 19/98: Status of Lubicon-Federal govt. talks
In 1991 then federal Indian Affairs Minister Tom Siddon, reportedly under pressure from Daishowa who told him he couldn't credibly claim to have the Lubicon situation under control when the federal government and the Lubicons weren't even talking, asked for a meeting with the chief.
Siddon met with the editorial board of the Edmonton Journal, falsely told the editorial board that Bernard Ominayak had requested the meeting, and told the editorial board that he'd agreed to the meeting but that the "take-it-or-leave-it" offer stood and wouldn't be changed.
Siddon that there was nothing to talk about if the Federal government wouldn't reconsider the unacceptable "take-it-or-leave-it" offer or seriously entertain Lubicon settlement proposals.

 Eye Weekly - PM Campbell's secret deal to kill a river - 10.14.93
But on Sept. 14, 1987, then-DFO Minister (now Defence Minister) Tom Siddon signed the Kemano Settlement Agreement, effectively bringing to an end a seven- year battle between DFO scientists and Alcan over what constituted a "acceptable level of certainty" for the survival of salmon stocks on the Nechako River.
The means by which the agreement was reached led to an RCMP investigation to find out if there were any grounds for charges of breach of trust, secret commissions, influence peddling, fabricating evidence, perjury or obstruction of justice.
A specific question that should be asked of the Prime Minister is whether she knew of the RCMP investigation into Siddon, deputy minister Meyboom and Alcan that was taking place in 1991.

Now the spotlight is on Siddon again, because of hundreds of pages of DFO documents leaked to Cheslatta Nation and documents obtained by Cheslatta from the RCMP and DFO under Access to Information legislation.
His probe centred around allegations that DFO scientist Dr. J.H. Mundie, who was preparing expert witness testimony for a 1987 court case against Alcan, was pressured to change his testimony and was dropped as a witness after he refused to make all the requested changes.
Siddon was also Fisheries Minister when Assistant Deputy Minister Pierre Asselin launched an internal probe into the Settlement Agreement in late 1987.

 Eye Weekly - Furor over the Tories' Kemano Project yet to subside - 07.14.94
This was the final manoeuvre in a long string of behind-the-scene machinations, the audacious highlight of which was former fisheries minister Tom Siddon's ordering in 1987 of his department's scientists to be more "reasonable" toward poor old Alcan.
The reason for the Mulroney cabinet's intervention to shield the prime minister's cronies was a federal review which had found that the impact on the Nechako River's salmon from the Alcan project would be as much as seven times as severe as the company was claiming.
Documents eventually leaked from the fisheries department showed that research scientists were pressured by senior bureaucrats -- acting under Siddon's orders -- and told to tone down their criticisms of Alcan.
