Letter of the Day

Seeing small progress

  • Print

Re: Métis to be consulted on Bipole III (Nov. 15). My layman's understanding of the Kapyong Barracks fiasco, which has resulted in valuable property in south Winnipeg remaining unused and undeveloped for many years now and likely many more years, is because government decided to push ahead with decisions on how to dispose of the land without consulting with the appropriate First Nations groups who had a legitimate interest.

Manitoba Hydro has now indicated that it will consult with the Manitoba Métis Federation regarding a route change to its illogical and politically biased Bipole III project.

Perhaps we are seeing some small progress along the learning curve for any government that tries to push its own agenda without due consideration to the people who are impacted by its decisions.

If it is the law of the land that is allowing these special interest groups to hold all the cards, then it is high time we started to change those laws, including aboriginal treaties that were signed more than a century ago under much different circumstances.
