      Here, in many parts of Canada, we still have a sense of time and history that can extend past our history of nationhood. Unfortunately, we have taken too long to confront our failure in treatment of the First Nations people. I read about a First Nation community near London that has been on a boil water advisory for ages. The Ontario government deals with the pipes, but the Federal government deals with the money. Neither will budge to act. The community sits in the middle helpless in the face of warring bureaucracy. maybe the bureaucracies are working very efficiently, eh ?
