    I don't know what the solution is, but I think it has always up to Aboriginals to decide what they want to do and what's best for them.
    exactly. people are a strange lot, not wanting to be alone, but looking for reasons to differentiate eachother. i cant wait (wont live long enough though) for the day everyone on earth crossbreeds so much, we all have the same skin color. i have a feeling alot of problems would dissapear

      That would indeed be a sad day. It is what makes Life interesting and challenging each day of our existence. And just WHO do we want people to equal too - some skin colour. You see nothing umbrageous about, about sameness. How ******* dull that would (will) be.

        • Your Right!

          We are Human Beings first and foremost.
          Now if we could all learn to respect that.


          There is a quote of Tommy Douglas' I want to share, "Man is now able to fly through the air like a bird, he's able to swim beneath the sea like a fish, he's able to burrow beneath the ground like a mole. Now, if he could only walk the Earth like a Man, this would be Paradise."

          wow

          • Apparently they hired counsellors last time this was in the news big time, and then laid them off after the media attention dropped off.

            • First Nation chiefs work to defeat on-reserve poverty, pitch pipeline investment at Calgary summit

              Reporter Global News, November 4, 2019

              “ Delbert Wapass, the founder of Project Reconciliation, said there is an opportunity for First Nations across the country to collectively purchase a 51 per cent stake in the Trans Mountain pipeline.

              “We’ve been economically starved out of any large opportunities,” Wapass said. “We are always a recipient of — rather than controlling our own destiny. We don’t want to be dependant on government.”...

              “ Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said his government would be open to Indigenous ownership of the pipeline, adding that they have plans to assemble a committee of experts to advise about the possibility of selling a financial stake of the project to First Nations.”

              said Chief Dan George, of the Burns Lake Band in B.C.
              George is a director with the National Coalition of Chiefs and is supportive of a new TC Energy Corp. pipeline crossing his band’s territory.”...
