Please tell Hon. Minister John Duncan that the Canadian government must act immediately to provide infrastructure funding for housing in Attawapiskat. Winter is here and people are living in inadequate shelters, without heat, sanitation or plumbing. Chief Spence now calling for Evacuation.
Dear. Hon.John Duncan It is with deep distress that I have read the latest news concerning Attawapiskat. Having followed the struggle of the young people on this reserve to have a school built and to have access to education I had been uplifted by their marvelous attitude. How cruel to read that as winter approaches the housing situation has become a crisis. Canada must act in the immediate present to respond to this disaster. Canada must act to empower and support first nations communities by allowing them to own their homes and create a strong infrastructure for these northern communities. Sincerely
I want to sincerely thank you for signing the petition for the Attawapiskat Housing Crisis. Over 6000 people have signed this petition, today I will send your signatures to Hon. John Duncan. It is time for Canada%u2019s relationship with First Nations Communities across Canada to change for the better. All of us need to be advocates for this change. Please contact your local MP and let them know it is time for First Nations communities to have equal access to basic human rights, housing, education and health. As of today there is still no action from the government on the State of Emergency in Attawapiskat.
Today you can continue to support Attawapiskat by signing onto Shannen%u2019s Dream http://www.fncfcs.com/shannensdream/ an effort started by Shannen Koostachin to get an elementary school for her reserve of Attawapiskat. Look for NGO%u2019s in your community that support Native and Non-Natives working together to build a better future for First Nations People across Canada.
Winter is here and time is running out for Attawapiskat. It is time our Federal Government took action and responded to these pleas for help.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
