Why I’m hoping the Algonquin land claim proposal is voted down | Ricochet


Why I’m hoping the Algonquin land claim proposal is voted down | Ricochet: Canada’s systems — education system, law, health, housing, child care and social services — are not working for Indigenous people. There is no reason for us to continue to discuss this.

This is the only way we are going to be able to live the way we deserve to live. Without access to land and resources, we will remain within the oppressive and inadequate colonial order that is harming us.
