According to a recent article from the Guardian suicide rates among First Nations youth are out of control, the product of deep poverty, official neglect and a hopelessness generated by severely overcrowded housing and unsanitary conditions

Signed and noted with sadness that nothing changes with any haste. It's shameful that native peoples were mistreated everywhere that Europeans took over. They did it without any consideration for what they were usurping and have continued on the same path ever since. It's time to rectify the damage and pay due respect. It's the least all governments can do. Thank you Cal for bringing this all important petition to my attention.

Signed of course,
Not that things were better pre Harper but the Conservatives were perhaps the most regressive in my memory of first nations treatment in Canada. This is a blight/ongoing cancer on Canada's record and we as a country can not point any fingers and say"you must do better"to any other country accused of mistreatment or neglect to their first nations/aboriginal citizens. We need to get our house in order first. "better is always possible" This may take some time coming as there are many MANY issues,departments.laws or policies left untended, ignored, dismantled, altered enacted as law by the previous government. These affect the ability to make meaning full change in almost all areas of governance in Canada. In short we must have proportional representation as the means for electing the next federal government in Canada. The provinces should follow suit ASAP. Lest we have our democracy and freedoms undermined any further by this antiquated first past the post system we have now

Start by observing TREATY OBLIGATIONS, and go on from there. RESPECT Native Culture, Traditions and Languages. Don't force assimilation, religion or anything else. Educate the Young in their Traditions worth keeping, and give a role to the Elders in passing them on. The trauma of the Indian Schools has passed down thru the generations, damaging Self-respect; and it is time to REVERSE that as much as possible, by doing the above-mentioned things and more. Native Culture was [and still is] in so many respects, SUPERIOR to the Usurping White Culture, in being Sustainable with Nature and in other ways....
