Forfeiting rights for perceived security

 
Oct 18, 2020 | 23:25 1 Well i trust drinking water on an Ontario Native reserve more then the ability of govt to protect me from covid..... here's da list

https://www.watertoday.ca/textm-p.asp?province=8 there's only 89 communities

Maybe expectations should be lowered because regardless whether conservative or liberal, relying on govt for survival, appears to be a very bad idea Reply With Quote

    ^^^^^^^ This ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Every one of those villages has a chief and band council. Don't think of them as a "nation" or even a reserve - they're a village - and no different than the ones many of us live in. My village gets boil water advisories very occasionally and then we - the residents of the village - fix whatever brought on the advisory. The fact that these Indian villages DON'T fix their problems for years tells the whole story. Screaming "It's whitey's fault. It's whitey's fault." isn't a solution. Reply With Quote

  • Oct 19, 2020 | 07:31 6 My question is, was there mainetenance allowances(paid over time) made for brand new infrastructure built in those "communities".

    Tonnes of "MEEP"(Municipal Economic Enhancement Program) money got paid out to non status communities, difference is what ever it funded is usually cared for by the recipients and maintained with money out of their own pockets. Reply With Quote

    If they would have been given everything for 3 generations, today they would be no better.


    It's not the race of people. It's the environment they are raised in generationally.


    Worst thing we ever did for the Indigenous population is make them totally dependent on another group (govt of Canada) for their well-being. Reply With Quote

    So yes it will be more of the same for the next generation unfortunately, and all the issues that come with that , addictions , crime , and poor living conditions for those unwilling or unable to help themselves. Some native communities have done very well and used allocated funds wisely and have very few issues , others as pointed out , have not . Accountability and leadership are the only fix , not lack of funding .
    Needs to start within their own communities. Reply With Quote

    Lost of small towns and villages don’t have drinkable water, and lots that are drinkable you probably don’t want to drink. Reply With Quote
