  1. In a underhanded way it may help for future discussions
    Most of what he said never gets out to the rest of Canada
    My self I still remain A concrete Indian because of the
    Indian Act too many restrictions imposed on the native populations
    but I will always speak my mind to defend the misconceptions
    about Native in general. We as natives with the Metis have fought
    long & hard to put things right. I was taught that we all are brothers
    from other mothers & sisters from other misters. Raping the land
    for the glut of the world is wrong it is 2012 there are other options
    out there for natives & the whole country to explore & advance
    A whole new green market sun water wind it is provided for
    bye our Mother Earth it is all we have 1 earth.
    Love people

  2. Hoping we can all work together to make things better in the here and now! Lets all put the past to rest and start a new future together! Also lets get the government on board and make them understand a new program needs to be put in place on the reserves. I think the public is a bit in the dark about all this! Maybe Nelson has help already by going to the lengths he did. It made me more aware already! Really it can only help that is what I believe – just a nobody white canadian with some ideas. We should all be proud of who we are and where we come from… Canada
