An open letter to all chiefs, grand chiefs, and aboriginal leaders in British Columbia.
The last election has cemented our government’s view that the resources of our province are up for sale.
I am one of many who believe the political process meant to oversee the balance of nature and economic activity has failed.
The aboriginal peoples may be this province’s last line of defence.
Your stewardship of this land has never been abdicated and your voice may be that small sound of sanity in a world gone mad for precious resources.
You understand that our waters are a life blood to the land and have no business being sold to a highest bidder.
You have a presence powerful enough to stop the bulldozers, save our waters and protect our land.
I hope you raise your voices to the sky; I hope you are heard around the world.
History has separated our voices for a very long time.
One day our children could speak together but to do that they need your leadership now.
It is your leadership that must inspire our children and motivate a somnolent public into action, before all is lost.
We currently have a government that has no ears to hear, no eyes to see, no interest to protect, and a public that is disassociated.
British Columbia needs your leadership now and you shouldn’t have to do it alone. How do we add our voices to yours?
