A former premier of the Yukon, Tony Penikett is a Vancouver-based mediator whose twenty years of involvement in Aboriginal rights negotiations, partially on behalf of the provincial government of British Columbia, led him to examine how and why the process of First Nations treaty making has stalled in British Columbia in the wake of the Nisga'a settlement. He has criticized the expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars by the B.C. Treaty Commission since 1992 with few results in Reconciliation: First Nations Treaty Making in British Columbia (D&M 2006). $26.95 1-55365-143-X
