Help Attawapiskat - Canadian Civil Rights

A "digital storm" from concerned Canadians has put pressure on the federal and Ontario governments to intervene in the state of emergency (mainly a housing problem leading into winter) that has developed in the Northern reserve of Attawapiskat.

"I spoke with one family of six who had been living in a tiny tent for two years. I visited elderly people living in sheds without water or electricity. I met children whose idea of a toilet was a plastic bucket that was dumped into the ditch in front of their shack," - Charlie Angus, MP (Written in the Huffington Post Canada)

Some suggest sending the military into help is the right thing to do, while others (such as TV's Mike Holmes -Holmes on Homes) suggest that teaching the Attawapiskat people to build their own houses would make the most sense; "teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime" (Chinese Proverb).
