Good day, a young man  from Queen E High school in Edmonton needs to interview a residential school survivor  for his class project. As I am a survivor of the 60s scoop phenomenon and may  not be appropriate for the interview. I would like to help the student to connect to someone willing to share his/her story. email me at donaldmorin@gmail.com if you  want to help. Thank you for your time

SO true I seen this gentleman in the DTES many times trough out m stay on Salish Territory, An elegant and humble man who did great work for the DTES community. His empathy is worthy of great acknowledgement in understanding the human condition in the poorest  postal code in Canada, I always seen my  sense of guilt as being worthless, not necessarily as hopeless, when it came to the racism I experienced in life. how those people at the time were able to sucker punch, cajoled, or intimidated, and ridicule me for being an NDN at the time. Getting targeted  after leaving a native employment centre and waking up in the hospital  with no memory of how, what, when, and why there we as golf sized lump on my upper left forehead.. I have to thank "Chuck" from MOVEX in Vancouver. Movex was a company  I worked for part-time. Apparently I phoned him from my  place, scared, and in panic, no memory. He took me to St. Paul. ya, the trauma I experienced as a baby and child has haunted me before when acts of these time occur and triggers the body memory. Thank you Gabor Maté  for your words, and your work.  least not to forget some of his closing words
 "...The implicit racism in our law-enforcement institutions must be openly acknowledged and cleansed... ..we [CAN]can find the resources in our rich land to help redeem people whom our history continues to victimize." My emphasis!!!

The politics of contradiction. On One hand it is medicinal legally for some, on the other it is this arrest for seeds. Seeds that are part of the Creator's garden. A natural plant that archaic man made laws  have outlawed because of old ideologues, refer madness and a system afraid that utilizing this planet may harm others and lead onto other dangerous activity. An archaic system that some say suppresses a natural medicine which expands ones mind and spiritual connection to the Great Spirit, the Great Creator..Hummm, What's this person been smoking.
The OverGrow Canada tour became derailed on Wednesday as weed activist Dana Larsen was taken away by Calgary police at an event that had drawn 150 supporters.
