    As a non-native citizen of B.C. for most of my 60 year life, I have great respect for the native people of our province in how they live in harmony with the land. It is sad to hear that people of the Nehemia Valley, and indeed other groups as well, have to constantly fight to maintain what is rightfully theirs. Issues such as Fish Lake will require negotiations. I believe, however, that any outcome should be a win-win situation for all concerned. If not, there should be no deal. nTo the people of the Chilcotin, I wish you well in your struggle. nI live in Vancouver, but hope to personally visit your beautiful country soon and perhaps bring my horse.nnBest Regards,nHugh Martell

    My mother was from the Chilcotin…. it must be preserved to protect the natural way of life there. The Campbell government is raping our province. Stop the Mine ! ! ! rnViolence is not the answer but these people are desperate to save their way of life, please let your MP/MLA hear your voice to save Fish Lake.
