What happened to...
The notion of Communal ownership? Reserves were like that. People were part of the community. Everyone had a stake in what happened in the homes and the whole community. Now we see that there is a push to privatize the Reserve? Manny Jules wants us to be able to sell off the Reserve. Let business come in on Traditional Territories. Oh well, I guess things change.
We don't think about our Children's children anymore. It's all about now. What have you done for me lately? Not yesterday but today.
Paramount in the Native community was balance and that included thinking for all. Not one or two, but for all.
It looks like we've lost that, what do you think Manny Jules, Patrick Brazeau, Joseph Quesnel?
