Chief Shining Turtle

I want to tell you a story about discrimination. It is a story that has been told for years by people living on reserves like the one where I live. Now a document prepared by federal bureaucrats has been released that describes the yawning gaps between social services provided to Aboriginal people living on reserves and everyone else. We are experiencing a slow motion march towards second-class citizenship. We're talking about billions of dollars that are not being spent on education for children, healthcare for the sick, and clean drinking water for all -- just because people are unlucky enough to be Aboriginal. Aboriginal people on reserves are asking for comparable services as other Canadians. This is not too much to demand.

Prof. MacDonald said that if your personal life jeopardizes your professional or public role, it's reasonable to expect you to warn potential employers, but only really substantial risks need to be divulged. On the employer's side, if a lot hangs on their employees being "squeaky-clean," it's up to them to do a thorough background check.

The largely undetected coup, as revealed by the wikileaks cable, goes a long way towards explaining Canada's current predicament.

The homes of Echohaven must be super energy efficient, collect rainwater and are located in an oasis of nature. Echohaven has turned the modern process of building a neighbourhood on its ear
