Federal Election is coming up this fall; go out and vote. The main contenders
Mulcaire NDP (New Democratic Party)
May Green Party
Harper's Conservatives have been in power for over 10 years. The Conservatives
are ridled with Pork (that is, they award tons of money to themselves and their
buddies - just like a Chief), they all belly up to the Public Trough to fill
their own pockets with loot (like a Council), and seems to be turning into a
Kleptocracy (they steal what they can get away with from the public funds).
Mulcaire and Trudeau do not appear to have much sense. Mulcaire is scheming
and cynical and Trudeau naive. As for May and the Green Party, a bunch of
nutcases out of touch with reality.
Not a bunch that are really encouraging.
However, a change of government normally cleans out the corruption, so vote
for one of the others - even the Rhinocerous Party of there is one.
Liberals usually shell out more money for aboriginal social programs, but
Conservatives usually are more friendly to Aboriginal Rights and aboriginal
issues. The Conservatives more-or-less accept the Supreme Court rulings on
aboriginal rights, but try to distance themselves as much as possible from
implementing them. Liberals have tried to legislate Indians out of
On the other and, Conservatives don't do much for aboriginal communities. Of
some 600 aboriginal communities in Canada, over 300 of them have no clean
drinking water and another 300 have no schools. In the 10 years that the
Conservatives have been in power they have done nothing to change this. Under
international law, this is a Human Rights Crime.
Liberals as a rule run well-managed government finances with a balanced budget.
Conservatives as a rule tend to get deeply in debt, with little to show for
it except making their own buddies wealthy.
My suggestion, get out and vote
School is about ready to start up again. This year I am offering to give a
Graduation Gown to any of the girls in the family who graduate (matriculation/
Univerisity Admission) from High School, from College (Certificate/Diploma)
or University (Bachelor Degree).
I would like to propose that next year the family sponsor an Honoring Ceremony
and Giveaway in honor of all our family members who have died. I pledge $1,000.00
towards such a ceremony.

Alberta Gas Trunk Lines (AGTL) are planning to build some pipelines in the
Christina Lake and Round Hill area. These are traditional Mountain Family
Kinder-Morgan's Trans-Mountain Pipeline has been trying to get away without
meeting it's legal obligations to the First Nations that are affected by
the pipeline Right-of-Way, and generally have not dealt in good faith. As a
result, First Nations have been turning against the pipeline and intend to
fight the construction of the line until Kinder Morgan meets it's legal
Over the next few months I hope to be able to reprint some of the articles
that we ran back in 2008.
JASPER NATIONAL PARK
The offer from Jasper National Park for preferential treatment (waived fees)
for members of the family is still open. To enter into an agreement with
Jasper I need the participation of two family elders to sign the agreement.
I am currently also trying to get the same deal with Banff National Park.

others, A RESEARCHER'S GUIDE TO TRADING POSTS AND FORTS OF ALBERTA, the
