I have fought for our environment, against fracking, and taking water from our river for fracking and drilling. I saw what the coal industry did and is doing to our mountains and I am ashamed, I went to an Idle No More protest and was overcome with a peace I have not felt for a long time, that this is the beginning of saving our earth, and it is in all of our hands.
The Attawapiskat audit released today identified some issues that need to be resolved. Both the Canadian government and the Attawapiskat First Nation have a role to play in correcting the issues. To spend time debating the purpose of the timing of the release of the audit report does nothing to resolve any issue. We can't change what we do not acknowledge. Let's lead by acknowledging our faults.
