Naomi and I begin our 24 hour fast at noon today to support children in Manitoba

 Today at noon, Naomi and I will begin a 24 hour fast to support the children of Manitoba, specifically the children who have been or who are now in the care of child and family services.  We will be in the Tipi closest to the Legislature.  Hundreds of millions of dollars were taken by the provincial government from the Children's Special Allowances which were meant for these children.   In some cases this was taking away money put in trust for these children when they aged out of care so that they would have opportunities like going to post-secondary education.   This was wrong.  And now the Pallister government has legislation before the Manitoba Legislature which would prevent any legal action to return this money to these children. I believe the money should be returned to these children and I am supporting a protest organized by the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs, and specifically by Cora Morgan and the Office of the First Nations Family Advocate.  This protest is in the form of a month long fast - in which many individuals, like myself, each participate in a 24 hour fast leading up to November 5, when the bill is likely to have final consideration in the Legislature.  If you are concerned about what is happening, you can email the Premier to say you object to what he is doing or you can sign up to make a presentation to Bill 2 when it comes to committee.  You can do this by calling 204-945-3636.

Dougald Lamont speaks at Meth Forum last night to present positive ideas to address the epidemic, while exposing the lack of action by the Pallister Conservatives

Last night at the Notre Dame Recreation Centre in St. Boniface, at an Election Forum on the Meth Crisis in Manitoba, Dougald Lamont spoke eloquently about the severity of the meth epidemic and described the Liberal plan to address it.  The Liberal Plan will make sure that there is a single province-wide phone number for people, or friends of people, who need help dealing with meth to call (as there is in Alberta) and that there will be rapid access to a seamless series of steps - stabilization, detoxification, treatment, extended supportive housing etc so that people with meth addiction can be helped well and effectively and so that they can rebuild their lives.  The Liberal meth plan will be helped by our approach to mental health (putting psychological therapies under medicare), and to poverty (providing better support).  It will also be helped by our vigorous efforts to help young people understand the problems with meth in our education system and to provide alternative positive

The Indigenous Science Conference in Winnipeg June 14-16

  June 14 to 16, I spent three days at the Turtle Island Indigenous Science Conference.  It was very worthwhile.   Speaker after speaker talked of the benefits of using both western or mainstream science and Indigenous science.  There is much we can learn from both approaches.   With me above is Myrle Ballard, one of the principal organizers of the conference.  Myrle Ballard, from Lake St. Martin in Manitoba, worked closely with Roger Dube a professor emeritus at Rochester Institute of Technology, and many others to make this conference, the first of its kind, a success.  As Roger Dube, Mohawk and Abenaki, a physicist, commented "My feeling is that the fusion of traditional ecological knowledge and Western science methodology should rapidly lead the researchers to much more holistic solutions to problems."   Dr. Myrle Ballard was the first person from her community to get a PhD.  She is currently a professor at the University of Manitoba and the Director of Indigenous Science
