I have been scanning the online world for months now trying to find a way to explain how I feel and why I support the “Idle No More” movement and finally someone elegantly wrote a wonderful fresh perspective that I want to share. Now you could be asking why I don’t write my own blog about this topic…well honestly I am so close to it that I feel it would be too biased and emotional. This article is factual and clear, it needs to be shared and I cannot relate to the author since he’s Sikh and I am not. I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to starting a dialogue in regards to this article. Thanks for reading! – Michelle
It is so interesting to me how the Canadian government works. We know that there has been something wrong with the salmon stocks in British Columbia for years and there have been numerous reports and studies made, yet nothing has been done we have kept to our status quo. Now with the proposed crude oil pipelines crossing some of the most sensitive salmon habitat in BC I am wondering how clear the messaging will be within this report or will it be diluted with political masks….lots of words but no solid findings, leaving everything to interpretation. Only time will tell…let’s hope that responsible decision making and sustainable development prevail!
Here is a poem I found in a great book that I am reading. I felt the need to share it. It is from the book: “Empire of the Beetle: How Human Folly and a Tiny Bug are Killing North America’s Great Forests” by Andrew Nikiforuk
