May the laws of nature become the wisdom of all cultures and nations. May the families that settled many lands awaken to the laws of the nations representing nature become on family for a health planet in all areas affected by protesting in negativity with out bringing representation of what peace represents for a health sutainable environment. May the word, actions and thoughts of all involved awaken to how they affect the energy of the environment in negative and positive ways for healthy environment.

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 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?

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

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.

Living in Cobble Hill, our house is built on the Quw’ut’sun (Cowichan) traditional territory. However, our land title states that our property ultimately belongs to the ENRL (Esquimalt Nanaimo Railway Line). This is in recognition of an historic land grant that was given to the famous politician (and Robber Baron) Robert Dunsmuir back in 1884. In return for building a railway from Esquimalt to Nanaimo, Dunsmuir made massive amounts of money from more than 10% of the land on Vancouver Island...

Living in Cobble Hill, our house is built on the Quw’ut’sun (Cowichan) traditional territory. However, our land title states that our property ultimately belongs to the ENRL (Esquimalt Nanaimo Railway Line). This is in recognition of an historic land grant that was given to the famous politician (and Robber Baron) Robert Dunsmuir back in 1884. In return for building a railway from Esquimalt to Nanaimo, Dunsmuir made massive amounts of money from more than 10% of the land on Vancouver Island and the actual owners of the land – the Quw’ut’sun people- did not get anything.

So I have a question: Is there any way that we can formally return our land to the Qu’wut’sun people and lease it back from them rather than continuing to pay property taxes to the same Government that stole their land in the first place?
