Thanks for that notice and shared with the following comment:

"What is it with Western Caucasian populations and Indigenous Peoples? Is it that we know as French anarchist author, Pierre-Jospeh Proudhon, said 'Property is Theft'? I think this comes into stark reality wherever the West has encountered Indigenous Peoples - even in South America - because we perceive our needs to be superior being superior ourselves, as we see it.

"What is it with Western Caucasian populations and Indigenous Peoples? Is it that we know as French anarchist author, Pierre-Jospeh Proudhon, said 'Property is Theft'? I think this comes into stark reality wherever the West has encountered Indigenous Peoples - even in South America - because we perceive our needs to be superior being superior ourselves, as we see it. We cannot imagine how a native people could expect to be on the same footing and justified in their claim to vast resource wealth. We simply feel they are an obstacle to be got out of the way and then we legislate to make that legal and the right thing to do. And if that were not bad enough the local population are pushed to one side, their lifestyles destroyed and left to rot in poverty, social dislocation and addiction. It seems to me causes like that of the Cowichan People's need to be taken up by the likes of Greenpeace and made subject to class action law suits."

Thank you for being so technical, but that is public policy layered with racism and causing decay for Aboriginal Peoples of Canada on Reserve, off Reserve. I will probably never have a home, but I have to campaign for change and create awareness. Thank you for your comment, I appreciate it. Love & Light Sharon,

Anytime we are working with racism of any kind I will step-up to any work being done to end it.

I've lived up island between two reserves.I've spent time with a young family in their home there.I can attest to the great need for proper housing.Maybe this time the housing can be up to code and with design choices(as others have)and directed by Cowichan councils.

I think there are layers of code's being ignored on Reserve's yet, Cowichan Tribes own's 1/3rd of the Resources in Coast Salish Territory. Yes, the housing is horrible and people are suffering. According to Agreements, there should be more housing and Call for Proposals from companies that know the standard codes for building. In Sk. they build only during the dry season - here its wet all the time. Not sure if that is one of the problems, but other houses are fine - except Cowichan housing....

There appears to be layers of issues and concerns that no one is taking ownership for when it comes to housing and substandard housing and black mould, or lack of housing pushing natives into homelessness.

This situation is a mess and again some poor people have to suffer due to racism. Nothing new, this kind of stuff goes on all over the world. IT IS WHAT IT IS! We can make comments all day long to express our outraged, but nothing comes of it, we might get lucky and get some attention from a human right group that in return may take this situation up as a cause. Donation may Poe it but how many houses can that build or better yet , how does it clear up a situation that should not exisit....

So the best thing is to pray! The good book says that they shall reign and have their season, and when there time nears end they will run to all corners of the earth, but so salvation will be theirs.
