A columnist at the Montreal Gazette who was very knowledgable about Indian Affairs wrote often that the only way they will get ahead is to leave the reserves and join Canadian society. The future is to get an education and a good job and look forward. There is no life and nothing to look forward to living on a remote reserve where the ancient lifestyle of living off the land is now unsustainable.

Like Trudeau wanted to do, the best bet will be to abloish reserves, give some kind of settlement and relocation help and stop the handout mentality. Plus the sheer greed of so many of those in power who have little to no accountability is astonishing

I've been to quite a few reserves when I was in the fur business and I've seen first hand the mess some are trapped in.
