Is it more tragic that an 11 year-old child was murdered... or that no one apparently even cared that he was missing?
RCMP said they went to the burning home at about 4 a.m. Saturday. Officers' calls to the fire department went unanswered and the home was gutted, officials said.The Canadian government pumps, to no avail... 12 billion dollars a year into this black hole of misery and neglect.
Napokeesik earlier said that there's no blame to be laid, and that he wasn't surprised to hear the volunteer fire department didn't respond to the blaze when police called to tell them about it.
If you knew the name "Shamattawa" before last weekend, it is probably from 2002, when three people from the tiny community committed suicide -- and another 39 attempted it -- in the space of a week.It's well past time to integrate aboriginal people into mainstream Canadian society.
That's about 3% of the entire community trying to kill themselves, or actually doing so. (The equivalent per-capita figure for Canada as a whole would be about a million.)
UPDATE: Let's just blame the social workers
The leadership of the Shamattawa First Nation says a number of agencies should share the blame for the murder of an 11-year-old boy in that northern community.Of course. It's not like any of the so-called adults in this kid's life has any responsibility.
Miles says the only way they knew the boy was missing was because children in the community noticed they hadn't seen him for some time.Un-freakin-believable.
