Crazy that they are sitting on Ontario's only diamond mine.

There is so much crazy going on. I pretty much equate it to racism and greed. Not sure what else to think.

I'd realy like to know why our military aren't flying goods in and shacking up to help throughout the winter and get shit going on come the spring.

Ontario gov't seems at fault as far as the diamond mine goes.

Turns out DeBeers pays lots and lots of rent and tax for their mine but the gov't returns zero of that money back to the community. Non-native communities get a percentage of this kind of money but native communities are under some special clause where the province doesn't have to give them any of it, so they don't.

ahhh...the brown people clause.

C-towns, do you know of any groups that are flying in emergancy goods? What brings you to that area?

I would like to know how many other Northern communities are facing similar situations as temperatures get into the minus thirties?

and if you don't have kids you likely have an extra blanket or two. I only specified the kids since it's as I tuck my kids into bed at night..that's when I think of these kids sleeping in mould infested, freezing conditions that seems to realy shatter my heart. Sorry if this constant reminding is annoying...all I can think to do is shout out here and on Facebook. Pretty close to becoming the crazy lady with a sign on Parliment hill.

oops..exscuse me.....pardom me...freezing babies freak me out..exscuse me..pardon me...
