Re: City council vote on the native friendship centre:
Well it seems the city has reneged on its agreement to the province and if I were the province or the feds, I would well say if not now, when? And if not there, then where? And if not they and you, then who? And if not enough cash, then how much cash?
People only live for so long and the day is passing.
Although the developers do take a substantial venture capital and speculation risk, it is sad that they pass the buck of the disadvantaged and details on down the line.
However, the natives should be a little more proactive perhaps and have a viable self-made and initiated plan and some programs in the works at community structure, contribution, education and careers and such.
It’s sad, though, that the natives shared their land and waters and buffalo with the white man forefathers many years ago and now the whites’ children will not reciprocate.
Sad indeed and justice denied.
