I would like to offer a different perspective on the article about the N.B. energy commission seeking public input.
In the announcement, commission member Bill Thompson mentions three key components that interact and overlap.
I would like to remind Bill Thompson and all other New Brunswickers of a very critical fourth component, that being the ownership of the land that is known as New Brunswick.
Our people, the Maliseet, have always known it as Skigineeweekog or Indian homeland and we have never ceded, signed away or otherwise relinquished ownership of our homeland.
At some point, the question that needs to be addressed in a serious and truthful manner is this: how did our homeland become someone else’s country? Until that happens nothing good can result from the lie and the denial game that the transplanted Europeans continue to play with respect to our homeland.
All in the name of white greed.
White greed is what killed the Beothuk and white greed is what will eventually kill off humankind.
