    I am part native as well. My grandmother was taken from her parents and put into residential schools and adopted by "white people" my people were scalped and abused too, but do you see me crying about it? I have NOTHING against natives of any band, BUT as someone else said, dont cry about the way you used to live until you grow your hair nice and long to show some native pride, until you go live in the bush NOT homes we paid for you to live in. Stay the heck off of the roads we terrible "white people" paid for and created and start doing the regular rituals again. Dont come on our land and make a briggade, dont buy snazzy tvs etc. with the money we are giving you for other peoples sins, because TVs have NOTHING to do with what you lost! If you care so much why arent you doing all of the other things your ancestors have lost? Again, I am native myself, I never went and got a status card because I dont believe that we should suffer for the sins of our forefathers. I full fledge agree that what was done was disgusting and horrible, but I didnt do it. I wouldnt pay someones elses speeding ticket, so why should I pay for ancestors sins?

    What good will this toll booth do? So now NO ONE in their right mind is going to go into Garden River and buy things from their stores, and that new golf course they put in is going to get a lot less people now. Say g'bye to the local business as you know it IMO. I dont think they will go under but dont expect the same! You lost one heck of a lot of tourists.

    I wonder who really was here first?

    Someone mentioned it before. Who cares what happened before, if you are going to dwell on it you are going to be stuck in. Honour what exists now, and move on!!!!

    There are people out there that are severely abused as children. The ones who dwell on it do not lead a great life. Those who look past it tend to move on well!

    Every successful native I have met, as moved on. They all have said "You know, it's the past. It wasn't you nor I in the battle." All the ones I know that are not doing so well are the ones who still hang on to this "You stole my land". It's like a scapegoat.

    mammoths were here first and they were not put on reserves and hand fed. they were hunted to extinction. not saying that's what we should do here. just saying.

    Well said!

    I was looking forward to trying the new golf course when it opens. I, for one won't be supporting that golf course now and I don't think I'm alone about that. Damned if I will pay a toll to get there, and then pay more to golf on the reserve.

    That land for the highway was bought and paid for by the government. To make a toll for people to cross through should be punishable by law

    I have no intention of playing there because they will screw it up like every other thing they do then blame the white man when it fails.

    For one, the Natives aren't dwelling, everyone sooooo has that wrong! If the government is breaking their own laws and rules which they do with everything anyhow as in, not honouring the no tax treaties by implementing HST, not honouring the hassel free border crossing treaties, the list goes on and on for miles and miles, then the Natives have every right to break their agreement with the highways.

    as for hassle free boarder passing, why should the USA have to follow this treaty? they have a right to protect their country any way they deem necessary do they not? unless it is the Canadian border control, then I have no retort separate from the idea that if the Native's feel their treaty is being ignored, they should go through correct procedures rather than retaliation otherwise they may also risk breaking treaty and therefore abolishing it. There are repercussions for breaching treaties I believe through the UN (not 100% sure as I am no expert on the matter)
    the question then becomes... Is this a good thing?

    First Nation means we were here first so deal with it.
    perhaps you need to go back and live in teepee's. leave the past out of it, NONE of US where there.
