    The Canadian Government won’t address it because it is on reserves. They will wait until it ruins thousands of aboriginal people and our families before pointing their fingers at us. And then maybe thinking about helping removing/stopping it. We as ABORIGINAL PEOPLE do not matter. When WE MATTER most!
