Bill C-10 will hurt First Nations communities

Apart from the occasional whiz of a vehicle hurtling down Chiefswood Road, the main thoroughfare that leads into the heart of the Six Nations of the Grand River, the most populous First Nation in Canada, is still.

Wind gently rustles treetops, birds happily chirp and a blank-eyed rabbit silently inspects my car before darting into a green field; the scene is downright bucolic.

A little further into the reserve, however, a gravel parking lot outside a characterless strip mall buzzes with activity.

It's a hazy Sunday morning in August, and the non-natives of southern Ontario have descended upon Jay's Smoke Shop to stock up on tobacco.

Lots of tobacco.

Is there any hope that our Prime Minister will pause in his sideline cheer leading for Israel long enough to act constructively on behalf of Gaza's wounded children?

What would you like to tell the courts?

Canada Day celebrations in London and New York were cancelled this year. The festivities had been contracted out to a Calgary consulting firm. The firm gave up on the project when big funders Blackberry, and Nexen Energy pulled out. While it was still billable time for the Calgary consultants, those who wanted to celebrate Canada Day in London or New York were out of luck.
