While I support the idea of original peoples reclaiming control of their territory, this"shameless foreign thief" needs to know the intentions of her accusers with regard to the only home she knows before signing off on a document introduced by such inflammatory language.
Did it ever occur to you that we hapless postwar immigrants were also displaced and deprived, our cultures ravaged and broken by war? In fact, "Dirty DP" ("Displaced Person") was the first name I was called in Canada. What...

Did it ever occur to you that we hapless postwar immigrants were also displaced and deprived, our cultures ravaged and broken by war? In fact, "Dirty DP" ("Displaced Person") was the first name I was called in Canada. What was the three-year-old supposed to do? Tell Mama and Papa they were shameless thieves and then swim back across the Atlantic?
Please reassure me you do not intend to handle the problem of worldwide diaspora of too many people by calling them names. The real problems are (a) overpopulation worldwide and (b) a capitalist system that thrives on repetitive war. Those problems we can solve only by working together. I am prepared to do so--are you?

sounds like u want all the non native people to get out of the cowichan valley. I'm sorry u feel this way but its not going to happen. why should we be punished for something our ancestors did? my family has been here for a hundred years, we have roots and yes I know your roots are deeper.

The reason for my human rights campaign; is that I cannot get back on my homelands and have no home. I have been pushed out. My lineage goes back 10,000 years on Coast Salish Territory and even the original families have been pushed out. Its time to restore the lands to the original families of Cowichan. Huych Q'u

The de-colonization has begun! What has happened to the Indigenous people of the Cowichan Valley and Salish Sea has also happened in many places throughout the world. We need to work together to help ALL people live healthy, secure and happy lives.
