First Nations!

Canadian Press ... Ya just gotta love 'em.

Reporting on the progress of the elections for National Grand Chief of the Assembly of FNs.


Shannon Montgomery, THE CANADIAN PRESS ..... Attempts to educate us :

The winner will become the public face of aboriginal negotiations with the federal government and will have to try to balance often-conflicting priorities of natives across the country, both on-and off-reserve.

He'll also have to decide whether to take the organization in a new direction as it struggles for relevance in far-flung communities still waiting for a share of wealth from traditional lands and resources that were never ceded or sold.

Another imminent issue is how to deal with an expected resurgence of the H1N1 virus expected this fall. The swine flu has hit some aboriginal communities particularly hard and challenges include how to get supplies and a vaccine to remote areas already struggling with overcrowding and a lack of running water.

Really!! Says who Shannon?

This couldn't be just your own interpretation of things now could it?

Oh .. it's not really a question.


She is spouting off the rhetoric of the victim industry chiefs ... but no professional enough to give the attribution to the people making these statements.

Just another lazy press parrot trying to look intelligent.
