Re: “Mi’kmaq scholar Daniel Paul on the Boat Harbour closure

No in fact my family choose not to raise me next to a government owned waste dump, and i cant assure you if one was put beside their homes and then given money and land to move. Theybwpuld have taken it to ensurs their childrens heath and their own health would not be compromised.

I do not live in Pictou Landing but I have spent quite a bit of time there and have spent time at the nearby beaches and parks that are clean as a whistle as well.

The only people I have empathy for are the landowners in and around Pictou Landing who are "money hungry white men" or any other race who have not received any apology or compensation with an agreement on both sides to move. They are the real victims. I have empathy for the thousands of taxpayers now about to lose their livelyhoods with no compensation. As well as the million or so other taxpayers that will continue to pay out of pocket for this whole fiasco. When will it end. A lawsuit because the cleanup isn't happening fast enough? Workers walking off site because they are being blocked and harassed by protests?

I'm sure everybody involved could have come to a more ethical and rational agreement on the whole matter at hand but the race card gets drawn time and time again and unfortunately that's a touchy subject with any government and they were being bullied into their decision.

Re: “Mi’kmaq scholar Daniel Paul on the Boat Harbour closure

I can assure you the order to uphold the Boat Harbour act came from The Queen herself because she is tired of her office continuosly admitting wrong doing and paying out of her own pocket to a community that as basically built a financial and legal immunity to the whole situation.

Everybody looks like criminals and horrible people except the ones that continuosly steal from taxpayers and companies after signing document after document.

Re: “Mi’kmaq scholar Daniel Paul on the Boat Harbour closure

As Andrea Paul posted on facebook recently. "These money hungry white men would sell their own children, greedy fuckers" Ironically that's exactly what the band elders have done. Taken money and continuing to bring more lives into a community that everybody including the Queen herself has admitted is polluted and gave them compensation to move dozens of homes.

Re: “Mi’kmaq scholar Daniel Paul on the Boat Harbour closure

The Coast forgot to include that Daniel led a lawsuit against The Queen, The Federal Government, and The Provincial government back in the late 80's early 90's. The result of this lawsuit was an admittal of wrong doing by all parties, a payout of over $35,000,000 in damages to the band and a huge tract of 3500acres in Crown land. The stipulation of this lawsuit was that they would take the money, the land and move the whole reserve to prevent any further damages to the community. They got the money and the land but breached their side of the contract, didn't move and continued to protest.

Then again in 2001 the mill, the provincial government,and the band met when the contract was up for renewal to 2030. The band asked for compensation for agreement of the contract. The mill gave them well over a million dollars and their then chief quickly signed in the dotted line.

Boat Harbour was a poor thought out plan from day one as you guys reported to in 2009. We all agree but nobody wants to talk about the elephant that time and time again our government and the mill have apologized and made huge settlements to the band and they take the taxpayers and the companies money and continue to complain and breach contracts. Want to talk about reverse racism.
