And the chiefs are blamimg the cops for not reducing drug use. Lets not blame alcohol. Chiefs, give your heads a shake.

And the Free Press isn't accepting comments on this story. LOL.

Until Natives realize the real causes of their situation, they are doomed.

Because it happened on a reservation, it is more reason to look down your nose at them?? Pathetic!!! You never here anyone talking about the Natives who are doing good for themselves and their families. What's up with that?

You never hear a word of praise or thanks to all the working people of Canada that provide the natives with a responsibility free life.

One of the side effects(unintended consequence) of this Idle protest is that it has made Canadians aware of all the bullshit and waste coming from the Indians...the millions and millions of dollars that are unaccounted for by the people that are their leaders.

Canadians won't stand for this fu cken nonsense any longer imo and the Armani chiefs better listen carefully....same for our politicians.

Account for the money before being given any more!!

Well this Native works, owns a house, a vehicle, has a family and a dog.....no thanks to hand outs, just hard work! Stop lumping everyone together! How about bitching about the white homeless dud that needs your AND my help. Or is that not the same, cuz he isn't Native????

Funny how when a native does what we all do they think they are special.

I don't think it makes me special. Just saying, no need to lump everyone together! Cuz we are not all the same. I pull more than my weight Honey! I doubt you could handle my life, and be happy in it. And it's got nothing to do with being Native, and everything to do with never giving up.

Why aren't the average-joe natives DEMANDING that their chiefs account for all those missing millions instead of blaming the government for a lack of funds?

There is a certain parallel to the native issue and Muslims that don't speak out about their radicals imho.

This is going to sound like a pissing contest.I was born to an abusive alcoholic mother.My "father" was personna non gtata.I was farmed out to the relatives and in and out of foster homes.I was on my own at fifteen.I did not know that everyone wasn't brought up this way.I found out later in my life that if I had been an indian that this hard luck story would have got me a lifetime of handouts and government sympathy.Here is the difference,when you are not native you are expected to suck it up.You are not allowed excuses.Even though I had an "aboriginal" up bringing I am not permitted any priviledges granted to the natives,for obvious reasons.I am no different than millions of Canadians who have suffered through life.The government favours the indians over all other people.A lot of non natives are sick of hearing the natives bellyache about how hard done by they are.There was plenty of times in my life that I wish I was as "hard up" as a native.

No contest. I have had to deal with my own hardships....some not unlike the ones you mentioned. I don't wear them as a badge, I rise above them. Never say die!!! I am a success story for sure, as are many Canadians of different backgrounds. I do have Indian Status. I have only ever used it once. I choose to do for myself, when I can. And I know that I am not alone, in that. For me, it was more of a part of my past I needed, to move on with my life.:)

Native who pays her own way, doesn't take hand outs. And don't appreciate the fact that I am lumped in with those who do. Not looking for praise, just to be a part of.
