Can we be saved by Canada's First Nations?

Can First Nations save the rest of Canada from the Supply Management Mafia?  We may soon receive an answer to this question.

I have previously Blogged about how 7.6% of Canadian families can't afford the food they need to feed their families, 11.8% in Ontario, and 28.8 % in Nunavut (see The Chicken Mafia Exposed ).

Unfortunately, food insecurity is as high as 33% in First Nations people who live off-reserve, and 50% or higher for those who live on-reserve.  Fortunately, this gives Chief and Council on First Nations a greater driving force to find a solution.  Many feel that the first priority for all sovereign governments is for them to ensure food security for their people.

Growing your own food can create steady employment in poor communities.  It builds self-reliance and self-sufficiency.  It helps all those who live nearby, for they may wish to purchase the extras available in a bountiful harvest.

I have sent an email to Wikwemikong Development Commission, and to the Union of Ontario Indians.

We'll soon see if they're interested, and can help us break the log jam that is hurting all Canadians.
