I read the article and it makes a very strong case to vote Conservative . There is no future in having growing populations of any race in remote communities. There are no jobs .
Seems like Duncan was the only candidate who was actually empowering Native people. Unlike Gord Johns who presented a long list of dependencies he and his party wish to continue and expand on.
The condescending view of Johns and others is that First Nations are powerless without help from the colonial government. Glad to see one candidate speak truthfully instead of regurgitating keywords such as "empower" . You can't have "nation to nation " negotiations without open and honest dialogue. NDP has the same old paternalistic , politically correct bullshit.
If it costs $250 yo go get groceries it would be a good idea to move closer to the store.
"There's no way the central government in Ottawa can come up with something that will work"...... But The Harper Government has millions and millions to spend on a "memorial to the victims of communism". And they still haven't explained where the 3.1 billion in security funding dissappeared to. The money spent, this year, on funding the Senate and their expense accounts would probably go a ways toward feeding the hungry kids on the reserve. The price of just one F35 jet would provide quite nicely, for the entire native population of the west coast of the island. A small percentage of the subsidies paid to oil corporations would provide funding for aboriginal education and economic development.------ You see, it's not about what could be done. It's about making the political choices of whether to do it. There's money. But there's also Stephen Harper, and his gang of thugs. STOP HARPER!
The department that delivers programs for Canada's indigenous people has held back more than $1 billion in promised spending for social services over the last five years.That significant level of so-called lapsed spending — money promised but never spent — places Aboriginal Affairs among the largest "serial" offenders, that is, key departments that regularly spend less than budgeted in big dollar amounts year after year.
Gord Johns climbs onto the back of his high horse and "rides madly off in all directions". Guess the tax payer will be providing funding so Aboriginal people can travel to town and back. Hey Gordo we all live in a remote area. I want funding to cover my excursions around Clayoquot Sound...
Hey Ralph, maybe we could get Tofino interested in spending less than is budgeted. They will spend every penny they can suck out of the taxpayer.
