Students from “big comfy schools” across southern Ontario listened stunned yesterday to peers from a native reserve talk about what it’s like to go to a school with no building – just a string of portables where mice run across the snacks, the James Bay wind blows through windows that don’t close and a staggering 15 per cent of children never finish Grade 8.

Is the KI – Platinex Conflict Canada’s own Tibet? – Republic of Mining

Is the KI – Platinex Conflict Canada’s own Tibet? – by Juan Carlos Reyes

During a recent teleconference call with associates in Central America, someone made a comment regarding the imprisonment of aboriginal leaders from Kitchenuh¬maykoosib Inninuwug (KI) and how this showed that the government of Canada will go to any length to advance its industrial agenda, even if it means the oppression of aboriginal people. This individual went on to compare the policies of our government to those of China imposed in Tibet. I found that I couldn’t really counter these comments because, although extravagant, they were partially factual.
