Clear as mud

William Watson:
Even people who may not like it ...  seem happy the claim is finally settled.

In Canadian justice, however, “settled” is a relative term....

... Last week’s decision may clarify the guidelines for establishing aboriginal title, and maybe effectively broadens such title, but it’s going to be a long time and legions of lawyers before all such title is clear. And even once it is, there will still be lawyers, just to adjudicate it all.

" .. legions of lawyers .." Oh, so that's the problem. To any sensible person there never was and never will be aboriginal title to land but to legions of lawyers there will never be a bigger pot of gold.
