Dr. Flanagan’s report explores the demands of First Nations to sharing of revenue generated by the exploitation of natural resources in Canada.   The report finds that, though the demand for general sharing of resource revenue has received some support, it faces both legal and economic difficulties, and could have the same kind of negative unintended consequences as Canada’s equalization system.
