Occasionally I work near Caledonia. The opinions I hear go something like this:
Some of these points have a hint of truth to them. But, gentle folks along the Grand, you missed one: the big one, and the only one which has a hope of solving your problem:
Where is the federal government in the negotiations?
Okay, so old Dalton is guilty of stirring up the political pot for partisan reasons, but he has a really good point: If you are not brain dead, you know that Native relations and funding are primarily the responsibility of the federal government and always have been.
So, Jim Prentice and Stephen Harper: you can't redefine reality as you want it to be and shirk your responsibility to the Province. Such redefinitions from Ottawa like this or this are a real abandonment and stab in the back for the residents of Caledonia who voted for you.
Caledonia, I know how hard it is to admit being wrong, but don't let the federal Conservatives get away with truthiness. Make some noise on Parliament Hill, because you have personally suffered from giving those jokers the benefit of the doubt for far too long.
