The Musqueam Land Deal Discussed at ‘Forests and Oceans’

Charles Menzies has a thoughtful post about the disconnect between the public’s intellectual ability to accept aboriginal land and title rights and the emotional refusal to accept that the UBC Golf Course and part of a popular park could be returned to the Musequeam First Nation in a land settlement.

And, thanks Charles, for making available on your blog the audio of the speeches from today’s rally against the Musqueam land deal.
