The thing that’s most striking when speaking to any of the victims of Caledonia is how abandoned they feel. Race based policing and government cover ups have done their job of leaving many residents who were plenty feisty in 2006 feeling as though there’s little more they can do.
Some come to all of the rallies in the hope that their voice will be heard, but most feel that they have been abandoned by their government and their police force and that their voices have been squashed by forces much larger than they. A public meeting held last night by CANACE will however hopefully give them some new found hope. Change is in the wind, and I’m hopeful that everyone can see it.
On May 5th 2010, CANACE director Gary McHale and Voice of Canada’s Mark Vandermaas will be invited speakers at a National Aboriginal Policy forum at Mount Royal University in Calgary. Their purpose is to address the policy makers and intellectuals about the disastrous effects of appeasing criminals who hide behind their aboriginal ancestry, and they will be in elite company.
