    Maybe the NDP should ask why this reserve is so broke with all the money it has received. As for the housing issue what happened to the housing units given them by DeBeers? Where has all the money gone given them by DeBeers? Why has none of the money given to the band council reached the people? Maybe the NDP should be looking into possible corruption on the part of the band council! As for health issues the band chief doesn’t look like she’s suffering any ill effects from her supposed hunger strike. She barely looks like she’s even lost any weight.

    Here’s a thought. If there is such a problem on the reserves why don’t we stop giving aid to Africa, etc. and use it for them instead.

    The ndp are no more interested in the wealth fare of the aboriginals needs than they are for Bil C-377 for workers who want to know where their union dues are being spent on which the ndp refuse to support.
