Togetherness (Indigenous/settlers) we all want for there is much to learn from each. We are making a series of halting starts but there is so much to be gained now & much more later if we work together & go the whole way.

Let’s be good permanent friends & work it all out in common language then re-writing to legalese (successfully to the surprise of others in this world).

Perhaps if the terms of any particular relation are first negotiated in friendly meetings using every day language & between all parties then re-written in strict Canadian (we are all citizens) legal terms & agreed once again by all parties we will avoid these ugly sensational happenings which are counter to future good will.
