The new NDP Horgan government have reneged on their promise to the Moberly First Nation choosing to turn their backs on the First Nation People of Peace River. Contending flooding 10,000 hectares of sacred lands and rural farmlands is worth the 4 billion dollars it will save on its debt as it offers nothing in return for the people of this province (as the voices of the First Nation People and rural farmers have nothing to offer our province).
As the premier so callously stated: it’s not the first time the Indigenous People will have been let down by government… there has been over 150 years (aka screwing) disappointing Indigenous People. i.e. Why should I be the first BC Premier to respect and uphold First Nation Lands.
