  1. I’ve often thought that there should be First Nation representation in the United Nations.

  2. The fact that Canada as a country has to defend itself speaks volumes about how far it has to go to fix the wrongs of the past. Doing better now and in the future will certainly go a long way but I find myself wondering if there are any solid plans that will bring about betterment as it relates to our indigenous people.
