The article discusses various challenges involved in righting of historic injustices in Canada. It aims to reject each of University Professor Jeremy Waldron's three main arguments against the redressing of historic wrongs, published in "Superseding Historic Injustice" and "Redressing Historic Injustice" in1992 and 2002 respectively. He also comments on Waldron's proposition that the law demands a kind of on-going rent to be paid in order to maintain the validity of claims over time.
