Woman retraces great-grandfather’s run – StarPhoenix

Woman retraces great-grandfather’s run

The StarPhoenix
Published: Thursday, July 31, 2008

Shannon Loutitt has lived the dream of retracing her great-grandfather’s 100-mile run.

The Saskatoon woman ran from Edmonton to Athabasca, Alta., in 25 hours, one hour more than her goal. The July 18-19 trek was in honour of her great-grandfather who, in 1904, ran from Athabasca to Fort Edmonton in an effort to save the northern community from flooding.

Canoe Creek Band Condemns BC Environmental Assessment Decision

The Canoe Creek Indian Band is furious at the decision by the Provincial Government to abandon plans for a Joint Panel review of the proposed Prosperity Mine at Fish Lake. “For 18 months we have been in contact with Canada and the Province about the process for the review of the Prosperity Project. All along they clearly indicated that a Joint Panel would be recommended, and they were simply waiting for the Ministers to make the final decision to create one. Then the Province, after all those discussions and exchanges, turns around and decides to go its own way. It’s an insult to us, and destroys any trust or respect that might have been building with the Province’s environmental assessment office,” stated former Chief of Canoe Creek, Hank Adam, who continues to speak for the Band on the Prosperity Project.

Two solitudes break their isolation together – Globe and Mail

Two solitudes break their isolation together

PHIL FONTAINE , RABBI REUVEN BULKA and SYLVAIN ABITBOL
From Thursday’s Globe and Mail
July 31, 2008 at 9:30 AM EDT

Much has been made about the solitudes that characterize Canada. To a large extent, the relationship between its first nations and its Jewish community fit very much into that pattern, even though there are so many commonalities of our respective traditions that should have brought us into close and meaningful interaction. For too long, the nature of the relationship between our communities betrayed an almost complete lack of awareness of what made the other tick. There was little or no meaningful interaction to break the mutual isolation, particularly among the grassroots and certainly between the national leadership through the Assembly of First Nations and Canadian Jewish Congress.
