The sun is still shining

In the late 1800s the British crown came to the shores of the Lesser Slave Lke. There the crown signed treaty No. 8 with my great-great-grandfathers that stated that education was a treaty right.

If you do not wish to honour our treaty, then we will just take back all of the land, mineral and natural resources that are taken daily from our treaty territories.

That means everything from about the train tracks at Bear Lake right up to Dawson Creek and all of northern Alberta, plus parts of Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories.

I'm not saying we need more money. What I am saying is honour the legal contract that you made with us.

Are we wrong for wanting the government to honour the legally binding contract that they signed with us?

The contract that stated that all treaty rights would be protected, I quote, "until the grass stops growing and the sun stops shining."

So, I leave you with that and if anyone would like to make comments directly to myself please email me at sparky_1o1@hotmail.com.
